Star Wars Stars Share Anecdotes From Filming Original Trilogy
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.30.2014



Jon Spira has been at work on a documentary, Elstree 1976, taking a look at stories behind the scenes of the original Star Wars trilogy. The three films are cinematic landmarks and they have no shortage of stories behind their creation, some of which Spira shared with the Telegraph:

Laurie Goode (Stormtrooper) on hitting his head on a door on-camera in Episode IV: "I must have eaten a bit of food that was off. I put this Stormtrooper's costume on, got on the set, and as soon as I put it on, I wanted to go to the loo. ... Went to the loo, put it all back on again, got on the set and then wanted to go back to the loo again! I couldn't concentrate, I was shuffling along and I hit my head. No one said, 'Cut,' so I'm thinking to myself I'm not in shot and when it came out, I thought, 'That's me!'"

Paul Blake (Greedo) on his first day on-set: "...Walked out on to this massive soundstage, with this spaceship -- the Millennium Falcon -- at the other end. There's nobody there except for one bloke in the corner. He looked like an assistant, so I said, 'Excuse me, my name's Paul. Somebody's called me over here to see some guy, you couldn't get me a cup of coffee, could you?' And he went and got me a coffee. I said, 'Thank you very much, do you know this guy called Lucas? George somebody-or-other? He's the director of this.' He said, 'I'm George Lucas.' So I'd made George Lucas go and get me a coffee."

David Prowse (Darth Vader) on not being under the mask for the Return of the Jedi reveal because of Sebastian Shaw being a friend of Alec Guinness': "So Alec had a word with George, and George said, 'The only part we can offer you is the dying Darth Vader.' And all this was done without me knowing anything about it. I mean, I'm watching the movie and they unmask somebody completely different and then you sort of think, 'Well, why wasn't that me?' But then, when you learn how it all came about, you know, if it helped him in any way, then all well and good."
