With thanks as always to Darryl for the link, here’s his interview with the late Peter Sumner, the man who played the Stormtrooper who was whacked by Chewbacca in A New Hope.

Peter Sumner was an Australian actor who got a fortunate break whilst touring through Europe, when he got cast in A New Hope in London as the Imperial who got thumped by Chewie. Before his passing, DJ got to have very pleasant chats with the very vibrant actor in Sydney.
