So who is The Armorer and who plays her in The Mandalorian? We shall explain, but first: slight spoilers ahead…

Who plays The Armorer in The Mandalorian?

Emily Swallow plays The Armorer in The Mandalorian, including the newly premiered Season 3.

The actor also appears in The Book of Boba Fett, How to Get Away With Murder, and Castlevania.

As for who the character is, according to Wookieepedia, “The position of Mandalorian Armorer was held by a Mandalorian tasked with forging armor and gear out of beskar metal. 

“One armorer, who was known simply as ‘the Armorer,’ was part of the Tribe on Nevarro after the Great Purge of Mandalore. She kept the tradition of the Mandalorian people alive by forging beskar, but she also reminded the Tribe to never remove their helmets in the presence of another, claiming this was the Way of the Mandalore. During the skirmish on Nevarro, after reminding him of Mandalorian Creed, she tasked Din Djarin with bringing Grogu to the Jedi Order.”

She also forged Din Djarin’s armor around 9 ABY, so she has played a significant role in his life. Though whatever future intentions she may have is very much for the show to decide.
