In the final season of Star Wars Rebels, former Imperial Agent Kallus became a fully fledged member of the Rebellion, shed his Imperial looks and to some, turned into a dreamy heartthrob! This new look earned him the nickname, “Hot Kallus”.

In a recent interview with People, actor David Oyelowo, who brought Agent Kallus to life, describes how fans react to him upon learning that he is Hot Kallus. Check out the short clip embedded in the tweet below.

“The weird thing that happened during Star Wars Rebels was that my character took this kind of unexpected evolution where he went from being this guy to what became popularly known as ‘Hot Kallus.’ They kind of let his hair down a little bit more, he grew out the sideburns a bit. I think I was just a perpetual disappointment when the fans would meet me. They’d go, ‘Oh my God, this guy is Hot Kallus,’ and I’d go, ‘Hi, I’m David Oyelowo, and I’m Hot Kallus, I guess?’”

You will be able to catch up on every episode of Star Wars Rebels, as the full run hits Disney+, Tuesday November 12.

For those that need a little reminder of who “Hot Kallus” was…
