And in another interview with Screen Rant, Mary was asked if her husband Ewan McGregor any advice joining the series and if she’d love her character to team up with Obi-Wan:

I don’t know that he gave me any advice necessarily, other than to just enjoy it. He just told me about what a special experience it is to get to be part of something that means so much to so many people. And that already is proving true just today. And, yeah! I think if there was any way to make the timelines match up in some way, I would be incredibly happy to do that.
Stay tuned for even more ‘Ahsoka’ interviews with Mary to be released soon!
