Lee Towersey on Making Droids at Home to Working on Star Wars

Jamie Stangroom talks to droid builder Lee Towersey about how he went from making droids at home to working on Star Wars.

In this video I talk to Star Wars droid builder and operator, Lee Towersey. Lee went from making droids as a hobby to building and operating R2-D2 for Star Wars The Force Awakens. He’s since worked on all Disney era Star Wars films with various droids.
