Star Wars Celebration VI: IGN Chats with Sam Witwer

    Eric Goldman over at IGN spent a few minutes chatting with Sam Witwer at Celebration VI. Check out the intro below and then take the source link for the full interview.

    In the past few years, Sam Witwer has carved out quite a place for himself in Star Wars history. The Smallville and Being Human actor is a lifelong Star Wars fanatic, who first entered a galaxy far, far away (professionally that is) when he played Starkiller in The Force Unleashed and its sequel. On Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Witwer would then voice the character Son, one of three incredibly powerful physical manifestations of the Force. But Witwer is really stepping into iconic territory with his current Clone Wars role as Darth Maul.

    Last month, at Star Wars Celebration VI, I sat down with Witwer to discuss what it’s been like playing Darth Maul, who is front and center in The Clone Wars: Season 5 premiere, “Revival,” which airs this Saturday on Cartoon Network in the show’s new 9:30am timeslot.
