Performance artist, actor, and droid whisperer Chris Bartlett has played over 20 characters in The Mandalorian, Ahsoka, Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Book of Boba Fett, plus nearly 2 decades appearing live and onscreen as C-3PO. He joins us to discuss his acting career which took shape from his great work ethic and desire to please Star Wars fans. We talk extensively about his experiences as C-3PO and how he brings the droid to life in this Part 1. 

 

We recorded on May 21st, the 44th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, so Chris shares his story of seeing the film as a kid and having a deep desire to play in George Lucas’ sandbox.

 

Next week, we will discuss his many roles in the Star Wars TV universe. What was it like working with Grogu and the many stunts as his characters took “falls”.
