Hot of the heels of an amazing weekend in London, MCM return with their Comic Con in Birmingham on 18/19th November. Yesterday they announced they’d be ‘going for gold’ with C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels attending.
MCM Birmingham Comic Con is proud to present the only actor to appear in all eight Star Wars episodes – none other than C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels! The Star Wars legend joins our special guest line-up as we eagerly await the December release of the franchise’s latest big screen outing, The Last Jedi.
In addition to starring in all of the main Star Wars movies, Anthony Daniels plays the fretful golden protocol droid in Gareth Edwards’ much-praised spin-off feature Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, as well as voicing him in four animated series – Droids, Star Wars: Clone Wars, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the ongoing Star Wars Rebels.
The fan favourite droid has also been much in demand outside the official Star Wars franchise, with Daniels making cameos in films and TV shows such as The Lego Movie, The Muppet Show, Sesame Street and the soon-to-be-released Wreck-It Ralph 2. Meanwhile, the veteran British actor voices C-3PO in a slew of video game titles – most recently, Star Wars Battlefront, Disney Infinity 3.0 and Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
More Star Wars guests still to be announced, and we’ll share the news as soon as we get it. Hope to see you there!
