As a subordinate of the ruthless Grand Admiral Thrawn, Morgan Elsbeth played a significant role in the development of the Imperial Navy of the Galactic Empire. The identity of Ahsoka’s Nightsister, which some fans have long suspected, is also disclosed in the first episode of the show. Her character is played by Diana Lee Inosanto.

Diana Lee Inosanto: who is she?

Diana Lee Inosanto, who is a She in Hollywood, is the daughter of Sue and martial arts legend Dan Inosanto. She has blazed a trail in the entertainment industry and is well-known for being the late Bruce Lee’s goddaughter.

Diana developed her theater skills under the guidance of her aunt, the Asian American actress Lilia Inosanto (also known by her stage name Lona Nai). She immersed herself in acting after graduating to the guidance of renowned Broadway casting director Michael Shurtleff, studying with Tzi Ma and honing her skills with the Michael Chekhov method and improv at Upright Citizens Brigade.

Diana was an expert at choreographing fights, earning the nickname “Sensei to the Stars.” Under her direction, celebrities like Melissa McCarthy and Rosa Salazar honed their action roles. Her journey exposed a crucial fact: Hollywood’s inclusivity required improvement. Diana, a mother of a son with autism, faced difficulties along the way. Together with her husband Ron Balicki, she founded the MARS Action Group, which promotes martial arts education.

Diana came under the spotlight as Ron Balicki and the fight scene were being demonstrated. She was cast in ‘Barb Wire’ in a role that was originally intended for a man, beginning her career as a stuntwoman. She served as Sarah Michelle Gellar’s iconic Buffy’s sidekick and was successful in the Hollywood action industry.

Diana started her film project after being inspired by independent filmmakers. Her award-winning independent film, “The Sensei,” explored LGBTQ themes and displayed her skills as a screenwriter, director, and actress. She addressed anti-Asian prejudice, got involved with causes, and helped Filipino-American veterans.

A children’s book that Diana recently published reflects her experience raising her autistic son. Her collaboration with producer Mark Gordon to describe her father’s clandestine training regimen for the 1977 Dallas Cowboys highlights her extraordinary influence.
