Anthony Daniels (C3PO) Talks Star Wars Episode7.

Bleeding Cool sat down with the famous actor who plays C3PO in all 6 Star Wars movies and asked him if he is going to return for a 7th time. Find out what Daniels said after the break…

Bleeding Cool: What would it take to get you back in the C3-PO suit again?

Anthony Daniels: An urgent diet.

BC: It feels a little odd to me when we don’t have Threepio and Artoo in Star Wars. They’re the heart of the thing to me.

AD: Then you’re a very intelligent and sensitive man, you understand these things. I sort of agree. They are the icon of the show, really, but they can’t be there all of the time. People would get boring. Give somebody else a chance! Bring back Jar Jar Binks!

BC: That would go down like a lead balloon.

AD: Don’t be cruel.

BC: So… have they come to you about Episode VII yet?

AD: Well…

And there was a long pause. Until…

AD: What I always say to that is “Wait and see.” Let’s keep the suspense going. One of the people at Celebration will be Kathy Kennedy, the most loved person. She comes to Lucasfilm with an astounding history of film production and she’s also a nice person. A rare thing in a film producer, one feels. She’s hyper-intelligent, kind, clever, all of those things. And very very rich. So… I’m sure she’s a lady of discretion and taste who will listen to you. I want you to find her at Celebration and say “I was talking to Anthony the other day, and you realise Star Wars wouldn’t be the same without him.” Then see what she says. She’d probably have you arrested.

BC: So they haven’t spoken to you yet?

AD: I’d rather not comment. You will recall I’ve always had a rather discreet attitude, or a professional sense of discretion. I don’t blab things about the script. I think that would be very unprofessional, or childish. Let the films, stories and so on unroll as they should, when the audience first sees them… or, strangely, when they buy the tie-in novel some months before the film comes out.

Well it sounds like they didn’t contact him for now. Still there’s plenty of time before the production starts. If Han, Luke and Leia are returning then surely we’ll se the two droids again.

    I wonder how he’d feel about having another actor portray the motions and he just did the VO work? I’m only suggesting this if say… he felt to old to do it. Giving the supposed plotline of the new movies I can’t see C-3PO and R2-D2 not being a part of it.

    Also… No I wouldn’t find it boring… that’s like saying seeing a Storm Trooper or X-Wing would get boring.
