“Famous with the mask on” – the thread here is around actors in small roles in the Star Wars trilogy. We know their lines; they’re iconic. But unlike the marquee’d players, we know nothing about them. But, remembering that this was a film shot in the late 70s in England – prior documentary experience teaches us these are likely to be a bunch of normal Arthur Pewty’s with a pile of non-anecdotes. And so, they are. There’s a smattering of interesting stuff although it’s a harsh lesson in realism for the aspiring actor. And then, for some reason, Dave Prowse?! WTF is he doing in this?
