Anthony Daniels


Initially not a science fiction fan, theatre actor Anthony Daniels was persuaded by his agent to meet George Lucas for the casting of C-3PO in Krieg der Sterne (1977). He went on to perform the character, both his voice and body in the suit, for all the episodic Star Wars films produced. Additionally, he performed the voice of the character for the radio serial based on the original trilogy and the animated series Freunde im All (1985), Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003), Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008), related series Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) and Star Wars: Rebels (2014). For Star Wars: Episode I – Die dunkle Bedrohung (1999), he wore a blue Spandex suit, as the android is incomplete in the film and ultimately produced in CGI. In addition to playing the golden droid, he appeared in a live action cameo in the nightclub scene of Star Wars: Episode II – Angriff der Klonkrieger (2002) and opera scene in Star Wars: Episode III – Die Rache der Sith (2005). As C-3PO, he played a small role in Star Wars: Rogue One (2016) and The Lego Movie (2014).
