What was the life of actors from the "Star Wars"
It's been many years since the release of the first episode - for more than one generation grew up on this film, and after all this time "Star Wars" is still excite the minds and the hearts of fans.
We look at old episodes of the original trilogy, yes - there is not enough special effects, but we revel in performances by the cast, which fully replaces the absence of the user of modern effects. And where now those actors?
Mark Hammill, who plays the son of Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) - Luke, after the "Star Wars" played in musicals on Broadway, to get rid of the image of the savior of the universe, which were hampered by his acting career. But in film as an actor, success is not achieved. He makes a living voice acting movies and cartoons. I had a problem with alcohol.
Alec Guinness, who played the old Obi-Wan Kenobi - Ben Kenobi, to "Star Wars" has been quite a successful actor. He died in 2000 at an advanced age (86 years) of liver cancer. Rest in peace...
Anthony Daniels, who plays funny protocol droid C3P0, after filming began producing comics. Starred in all six episodes of "Star Wars", participated in voicing animated series "Droids" (1985), "Clone Wars" (2003) and 4 radipostanovkah: Star Wars (1981), The Empire Strikes Back (1983), Dark Force Rising, The Last Command. In 1978, as C-3PO, left fingerprints "of their feet" before the Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
Billy Dee Williams
Billy Dee Williams, who played Lando, especially anything not reached after the movie, filming is interrupted during second-rate comedy. Unfortunately. For him.
Carrie Fisher, who plays Princess Leia authorities, after the film did not become a successful actress, which is why she went into a drug problem. Dramatically changed their lives, tying with drugs, has become a famous writer - on account of its several quite successful novels.
David Prowse played the role of Darth Vader, with one proviso, that he played "Vader's body", ie. E. Go in costume, and the voice of the great villain the other person, that David did not like it. By the way, Darth Vader Unmasked - is also another actor, so Vader played a three person: body, voice and face.
A former athlete, bodybuilder. In 1990, due to arthritis and heart problems had paralyzed both hands. He is now president of the Disabled Association and to participate actively in the life of the fund to combat arthritis. I was disappointed that he was not allowed to play Darth Vader in "Revenge of the Sith."
Richard Frank Oznovich, better known as Frank Oz, puppeteer, driving Yoda in the original trilogy. He is known as a director, it may be noted his films "Safecracker" (2001), "The Stepford Wives" (2004), "Death at a Funeral" (2007). In all he took 11 films and 11 appeared as an actor.
Harrison Ford - Han Solo everyone's favorite. About him long story makes no sense, a successful actor, in films today.
Jame Earl Jones
James Earl Jones - it was his divine voice says Darth Vader. After "Star Wars" has continued to engage in further voice acting movies and cartoons, such as "The Lion King."
Kenny Baker - the same midget who played astromech droid R2D2. Dwarf growth of 112 centimeters. After the movie, he continued to work in a circus clown, worked as a DJ. Once engaged in the musical comedy. The last time the press mentioned him in 2005 when he was arrested for drunk driving.
Peter Cushing played in the original trilogy of Grand Moff Tarkin. After the filming has begun to live quietly and steadily, he gave himself almost entirely to his hobby - bird watching. However, he made a contribution to world politics - in 1989 became a British officer, did a lot for the international relations of England. He died in 1994 at the age of 81 from prostate cancer.
Peter Mayhew played the role of a Wookiee Chewbacca. Long after the film depicts the "fluffy rug", for example, at the MTV award ceremony. Who lives in Texas, is engaged in science fiction.
That's now live for all of us well-known actors: some have fallen asleep in the world, some have grown old in the glory of some forgotten after the "Star Wars", but for the true connoisseurs of art called Star Wars - they are immortal because they gave those characters voices favorite heroes galaxy far far away ...
