Which Star Wars actors have you met?

I figure between us all we’ve probably met a lot of the cast and it might be fun to put together a list…

I’ve been lucky enough to meet Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke) a couple of times and I’ve also met Dave Prowse (Darth Vader) at a convention.

I once met Carrie Fisher, she even had the slave girl dress on and looked exactly as she did in ROTJ…then i woke up…four feet above my bed.

I shook hands with Peter Mayhew at a convention. Holy shit are his hands massive! I also paid $40 for him to sign one of those stock Star Wars pictures.

I met George Burns once. He was Yoda, right?

No, he was God. I can see how you’d mistake the two, though.

I met Kenny Baker at a convention; he’s a funny guy (he was talking about being shot in the canyon by Jack Purvis).

Really? I found him rather crunchy myself.

I remember the thought crossing my mind before seeing him, “what if I get there and it’s the kid from AOTC”, but thankfully it was the Empire Boba Fett

I was in CE where I met at least Anthony Daniels, Simon Williamson, Dermot Crowley, Julian Glover and Michael Culver (plus Rick McCallum). Also saw Hamill and Fisher and McDiarmid etc. from a distance but not actually met them.

To my knowledge only Peter Cushing
He signed a photo of himself as Sherlock Holmes and thought I might be a bit too young for my Hammer bubble gum cards but we both thought the captions were funny. He was promoting his memoirs in a book shop and he was very nice to the children in line. I said I liked him on Morcambe and Wise and Star Wars. I Wish I had met Christopher Lee too.

I met David Prowse back at a comic convention in New Orleans in the mid 90s.

You know of the rebellion against the Empire?

I collect autographs - only Star Wars unmodified Original Trilogy and including both cast and crew.
So far I have got 29 different signatures spread out on two posters, all acquired in person of course, all at conventions. Carrie Fisher’s the only “big” actor though, and Ben Burrt’s the only “big” crew so far.

I have lost count on how many times I have crossed paths with Dave Prowse, Kenny Baker and Jeremy Bulloch at conventions. You see them often: signing autographs for money seems to be their only livelihood. They are very nice guys.
I’ve also seen Anthony Daniels five times - signing table and backstage: He has a bit of a bad reputation but I have not had any bad experiences with him myself.

I have actually met Don Bies twice (not at cons) but never asked for his autograph as he is only posing in Fett’s armour in the SE and was crew in the PT.
I have also met Ray Park (Darth Maul) a couple of times. Back when I started going to cons, I did get Andy Serkis’s signature but he does not count for me, because I see the TFA as an abomination.

I would so love to get Carrie Fisher’s autograph in person, she seems like an engaging personality! I got Peter Mayhew’s at Dragon Con earlier this year. From a quick Google, the last time Fisher went to Dragon Con was in 2011. So maybe I have a chance later in the future…

Speaking of autographs, I have Alec Guiness’s but I never actually met him.

Updated list so far:

Chewbacca - TavorX & moviefreakedmind
C-3PO - LexX & Darth Lars
Max Rebo - LexX
Crix Madine - LexX
General Veers - LexX
Captain Needa - LexX
Grand Moff Tarkin - Bingowings
Darth Vader - YIYF, Darth Lars & Erikstormtrooper
Boba Fett - moveifreakedmind & Darth Lars
R2D2 - Moth3r & Darth Lars
Darth Maul - Darth Lars
Snoke - YIYF & Darth Lars

If Darth Lars doesn’t count Andy Serkis then I don’t count Ray Parks for the same reason 😃

Yeah, how can you count a PT stuntman but not a TFA actor?

I met Dave Prowse as a child when he was doing Green Cross Code marketing

I met Peter Mayhew at San Diego Comic Con a number of years ago. Met Dave Prowse at Dallas Fan Days 2 or 3 years ago. Bought 8x10 photos from each to get their autographs. They are both very large individuals with enormous hands. Also both very pleasant to talk to.

I have met David Prowse and Jeremy Bulloch. Both were amazingly kind hearted people and so generous with fans.

Kenny Baker, who I didn’t get to meet personally, is a riot. At a convention I was at, he was onstage and would hold his nose and jump off stage like hes jumping into the ocean. He’s so small he disappeared completely! The crowd loved it! He still has some of that comedy act performer in him that you got to see in Time Bandits. A great talent!

I have met Noman Zilch.
