Karen Gilchrist is a co-executive producer on the TV series The Mandalorian.
Gilchrist started her career in filmmaking in a very traditional way – as a production assistant on The Fast and the Furious (2001).
A few years later Gilchrist worked as an assistant to producer Scott Stuber on three films including The Break-Up (2006) and The Kingdom (2007).
Gilchrist worked as John Favreau’s assistant on Iron Man (2008) – a film Favreau directed, executive produced, and of course appeared as Harold “Happy” Hogan. Over the last few years she has worked on several projects with Favreau moving from the assistant role to associate producer on Iron Man 2 (2010), executive producer on Chef (2014) and The Jungle Book (2016), and producer on The Lion King (2019).
