(Reuters) - Los Angeles scored early and often and ace Walker Buehler overpowered the Tampa Bay Rays as the Dodgers bounced back from their Game 2 loss with a 6-2 victory to take a 2-1 lead in the World Series on Friday.

The favored Dodgers wasted no time getting on the board when third baseman Justin Turner rifled a solo home run over the left field fence in the first inning.

The Dodgers, playing as the "away" team for the first time in a series being held at Globe Life Field in Texas due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scored two more runs when Max Muncy singled in the third to push the lead to 3-0.

The Dodgers plated another run in the fourth on a sacrifice bunt by Austin Barnes before Mookie Betts brought Joc Pederson home on a single to center for 5-0.

Buehler was sharp from the outset and took a no-hitter into the fifth inning before giving up a double to Manuel Margot, who scored on a double by Willy Adames for 5-1.

But the Dodgers got the run back in the sixth on a solo shot by catcher Barnes, who also anchored an outstanding defensive effort by the team.

One bright spot for the Rays was a home run in the bottom of the ninth by rookie Randy Arozarena, who had just one hit in the first two games.

With his two-out blast to left, the 25-year-old rookie from Cuba tied the all-time postseason home run record at eight.

The Rays will hope to build on that momentum when the series continues with Game 4 on Saturday.

Rosario Dawson made her first foray into the Star Wars universe in last week's new episode of The Mandalorian, playing the iconic character Ahsoka Tano.

The character originated in the animated shows  Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, with Tano voiced by Ashley Eckstein, though fans have clamored to see Dawson, 41, play Tano in some way, shape or form.

Star Wars fans finally got their wish on Friday, with Dawson revealing in a new interview with Vanity Fair that fans were the 'biggest reason' she landed the role.

''It first came from fans online. Someone tweeted me and fancast me. I retweeted back and I was like, 'Absolutely, yes please' and '#AhsokaLives,'' she began.

'And apparently that got the attention of someone who has been doing the Star Wars press for years,' Dawson added.  

The actress added the tweet was 'forwarded' to Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni, who also wrote Friday's episode Chapter 13: The Jedi, where Tano debuts on The Mandalorian.

'That kind of started a whole thing. I was like, "Oh my goodness, did I just get fan-cast in something?" And then nothing happened,' she added.

Filoni himself added, 'That was the first time and I looked at Rosario and I thought, Huh. Yeah, I think maybe she would make a good Ahsoka.'

'I just kept loosely aware of what she was up to, and she was doing some Marvel things. But I’d seen interviews with her where she would talk about wanting to play the character and her excitement, so it was interesting,' Filoni added.

He also clarified that there were no formal plans to bring in the Ahsoka Tano character at that time, but he brought her up when speaking with The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau.

'But when I started working with Jon Favreau, I’d bring up the character and he’s like, "Well, who are you thinking of playing her?" I said, "Well, Rosario Dawson’s top of my list," and he’s like, "I know her!" So immediately that starts to fit really well,' he said.

Dawson added she got a FaceTime call with Favreau and Filoni as they were 'building out' the show, adding, 'and I got to have a behind-the-scenes look at visuals and concept [from] what they were planning on doing with this second season.'

Dawson added that she had seen some of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the animated series that preceded Star Wars Rebels, where Tano debuted.

'Once I got the role, I actually went and started watching everything in its order. I started seeing a lot more of the connective tissue,' she said.

In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Tano leaving the Order was a 'major trigger' for Anakin Skywalker, played by Hayden Christensen in the Star Wars prequels, to head to the Dark Side.

There was always that conversation around Ahsoka leaving the Order, and that being a major trigger for Anakin going toward the Dark Side. It was just really incredible that the character started off as a teenager, you know?

Dawson also revealed that she had another interest in that character, because she was in the same acting class with Hayden Christensen as a teenager.

'I had a particular kind of interest in her and in that character because when I first started acting at 15, I did this movie, Kids, and I got paid like $1,000 to work on it. When the movie came out, I decided at 16 that I wanted to continue pursuing acting. My dad’s mom said, “Well, if you’re going to do that, and you’re 16 years old, then you need to study acting,” and put me in Strasberg. And it happened to be that summer when Hayden Christensen was in—we had the same class,' she said.
