Ousted Mandalorian Star Hails From Nevada Casino Family from

Gina Carano, recently fired from Disney+’s Star Wars offshoot The Mandalorian over controversial social media posts, is from a prominent Nevada casino family.

Carano, 38, is the daughter of Glenn Carano, a former Dallas Cowboys quarterback now working as Eldorado Resorts senior vice president for the East region. This region includes Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, according to his LinkedIn profile. He also served for more than five years as general manager of Eldorado Resort Casino in Reno.

Gina Carano’s grandfather is Don Carano, a former Army officer and Nevada lawyer who opened the 282-room Eldorado in 1973 on North Virginia Street in Reno.

In the early 1990s, Don Carano partnered with other hotel-casino companies to build the Silver Legacy Resort Casino in Reno. The Reno Gazette-Journal calls this property the city’s “first mega-themed resort.”

In addition to forming the law firm McDonald Carano Wilson, he also founded Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery. The winery is in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County, Calif.
