Stars Wars: Where Are They Now?

posted May 28, 09:07 PM by Puffo is running an article that documents the exploits of the Star Wars actors after Star Wars. Not horribly in-depth but entertaining.

Interestingly enough for a character who’s more than 7 feet tall and covered in yak hair, Peter Mayhew embraced his character Chewbacca instead of shedding the fuzz as soon as the scene was cut. He continued to portray the hairy but friendly beast well after the movies were completed, including a cameo at the 1997 MTV Movie Awards. Mayhew was tapped to fill the Wookie suit once again for “Episode III;” his studied movement of the character made a stand in or stuntman merely a sub-par Wookie.
