Michelle Ang, voice of Omega on The Bad Batch

The first season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch drew to its exciting and emotional close this August with the two-part finale “Return to Kamino” and “Kamino Lost”, and among the season’s many achievements was the introduction of the newest member of Clone Force 99 and our favourite new clone, Omega.

Much of Omega’s charm and overwhelming popularity comes down to the exceptional voice talents of New Zealand-born actor Michelle Ang, whose native Kiwi accent and chipper demeanour made her the perfect person to bring the curious and compassionate young clone to life. A few days after the season finale, Michelle took to Instagram to thank fans for showing their support for the show and to thank her “Star Wars family” for welcoming her into their ranks.

She wrote: “Cannot believe how welcoming the @starwars family has been. Thank you for having me play in your world @badbatchseries and thanks to everyone who watched the show. Throughout the series I have held my breath, cheered and choked back tearful moments right along with you all. See you for season 2 on @disneyplus.”

Don’t worry, Michelle. We’ll be right there with you next year for a new season of wholesome moments and heartache. 😉

And if you haven’t done so already, you should read this wonderful interview with Michelle Ang over on the official Star Wars site, where she talks about her work on The Bad Batch, what the role means to her as a woman of colour, and how her young son helped her find Omega’s voice.

The complete first season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch is now available to stream, exclusively on Disney+. And if you want to learn more about the other voice actors who portray Omega in the non-English versions of the show, check out my article “The Many Voices of Omega – From Michelle Ang to Z”!
