Anthony Daniels

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Anthony Daniels was born in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England back in 1946. Educated at Giggleswick School before studying law for two years before dropping out. He went on to attend Rose Bruford College, I could not find if he ever completed his education, but that really doesn’t matter so let’s move on.

After leaving he worked for BBC Radio and for the National Theatre of Great Britain. While he was working there he was invited to meet someone that would forever change his life, more on that in a little while. He is currently an adjunct professor at Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center.

That person he was invited to meet was someone I’m sure you’ve heard about George Lucas who was casting for a movie he was making. Apparently, Anthony did a good job because he has more or less stared in every movie that Lucas had made about the subject matter.

If you haven’t already guessed it by now that movie was Star Wars. Anthony has played C-3PO in every Star Wars feature films. He also was the voice character in all three parts of NPR’s dramatization of the trilogy. He voiced five animated series: Droids, Clone Wars, The Clone Wars, Rebel, and Forces of Destiny to name a few. His autobiography, I Am C-3PO: The Inside Story, will be released this November.

Good morning, James Dray Star Wars type movies were never and continue to not be my movie of choice.... I love action movies but they need to be more of  mafia type war ...

Well, I didn't guess, James... as I know nothing about Star Wars... I kind of saw the first Star Wars movie, but then slept through it... and I never repeated the experience. I must admit I liked the name Giggleswick for a school.

Good morning, James - I am not a Star Wars fan/aficionado but I know of some who have an encyclopedic knowledge of the subject.

Hi James Dray,

When I saw Giggleswick school, I immediately thought of Harry Potter! Not too far off.  Star Wars and the Harry Potter movies are both blockbuster fantasies.

I love the name of that school, Giggleswick, sounds like something out of Harry Potter.

James, I am not proud of the fact that I know nothing about Star Wars; however, I shut it out of my life. I will stay more open to it in the future and see what it has to say to me.  In the meantime, can appreciate the relationship between George Lucas and Anthony Daniels;  it really worked for them.

Hi James:

I did guess partway through your tale. I loved the first Star Wars movie - was living in the Washington DC area at the time.
