Guest TV Roles

[none found]


  • Is the only cast member of the _Star Wars (1977)_ (qv) trilogy to voice his character in National Public Radio's dramatizations of the trilogy (while 'Mark Hamill (I)' (qv) and 'Billy Dee Williams' (qv) voiced their characters for the Empire Strikes Back, they were replaced by 'Joshua Fardon' (qv) and 'Arye Gross' (qv), respectively).
  • Ironically enough, Anthony Daniels was never a science fiction fan. The only science fiction movie he ever saw in a theatre was _2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)_ (qv). He was so disatisfied with the movie that he walked out after only ten minutes and demanded his money back!
  • As C-3PO he has planted his 'metal' footprints in the courtyard pavement of Mann's (formerly Graumans's) Chinese Theatre.
  • He was the guest of honour at the Sci-Fi Congress "Shadowcon 4" in Oslo, Norway, August 1999.
  • 'Mel Blanc' (qv) was the one who ultimately suggested Daniels for the voice of C3-PO.
  • As C-3PO, he has the first line in the first Star Wars (_Star Wars (1977)_ (qv)) and the last line in the last Star Wars (_Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)_ (qv)).
  • Is the first actor to appear in both a Star Wars film and a Lord of the Rings adaptation, by having played C-3PO in Star Wars, and voicing Legolas in Ralph Bakshi's The Lord of the Rings. Other crossover actors include Paul Brooke (the Rancor keeper, who also voiced Grima Wormtongue in the BBC radio adaptation), Christopher Lee (who played Count Dooku and Saruman), Marton Csokas (who played Celeborn and was the original voice of Poggle the Lesser), Kiran Shah (who played an Ewok, and was the scale double for Elijah Wood and Ian Holm), and Bruce Spence (who played Tion Medon and the Mouth of Sauron).
  • He and 'Kenny Baker (I)' (qv) are the only actors to have a role in all six Star Wars movies.
