UPDATE: The Force Awakens: Salo Gardener Returns

    He played Trinto Duaba in 1977’s A New Hope and now actor Salo Gardener is back playing a brand new character in 2015’s The Force Awakens.

    UPDATE: Very interesting, a thread has begun on Facebook explaining that while Gardener WAS in A New Hope, he didn’t play Trinto Duaba.

    Matt Booker: so which character was he ?? a similar species/race then?

    Chris Trevas No one knows what he looked like in the Cantina back then. The ANH pic commonly associated with him is a rubber mask from Rick Baker that happened to look like him. That vintage photo is from the pickup shots in LA. It’s a US extra in the rubber mask.
