Richard Oldfield

    We seem to making a hobby out of announcing guests, or should that be a “Hobbie”?
    Welcome to the show Richard Oldfield, an American actor who came to the UK in the 60’s and is best known for his role of Derek “Hobbie” Klivian or Rogue 4 in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. His scene with Carrie Fisher where he delivers the line “Two Fighters against a Star Destroyer?” along with his X-Wing flying sequences culminating with his death crash (which somehow ended up in Return of the Jedi) have become part of the Star Wars legend. He appeared in many film, stage and television roles. His other notable Sci-Fi roles were in The Martian Chronicles, Blake’s 7, Space 1999, Omen 3, and Life Force. Richard still lives and works in the UK, enjoys meeting fans & is also a lovely guy who is joining the growing SFS line up for the whole weekend!!
