IT’S A TRAP!!
Or is it?
Well it’s definitely not, as we proudly announce the next guest for SFS 2017, ladies, gentlemen, girls & boys, its’s none other than puppetry genius & everyone’s favourite Mon Calamari Tim Rose, who is probably most famous for his character Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Star Wars: The Force Awakens & will reprise his role in Star Wars: Episode VIII the second instalment of the sequel trilogy.
Tim started his career with Jim Henson in… New York working on Sesame Street. He was one of the forerunners of animatronic design and is still in great demand today.
His many credits include several Muppet movies, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Return to OZ, Fierce Creatures, Walking with Dinosaurs, Spitting Image and Dr Who.
Tim will be with us all weekend, on SatWhoDay he will be taking part in a special creators panel talking about his extensive work on various films & TV shows including Dr Who and his time portraying Admiral Ackbar as well as much loved characters Salacious Crumb & Sy Snootles in Return of the Jedi. On StarSunday it’s all about Star Wars where Tim will join Garrick Hagon and maybe some other stars from the film to talk about its legendary status and tell some stories & let slip some secrets about Episode VIII, hopefully!!
