Anthony Daniels


Born: 21 February 1946
Birthplace: Salisbury, England
Best known as: C-3PO in the Star Wars movie series

Anthony Daniels was a little-known actor of the English stage until he was cast in the first Star Wars (1977) movie by George Lucas. He has since played C-3PO, a fastidious robot companion to Luke Skywalker, in most of the Star Wars sequels and prequels, providing comic relief alongside his fellow robot R2-D2. In The Phantom Menace (1999), Daniels did the voice work for the character but did not appear in the movie. In 2002's Episode II: Attack of the Clones and 2005's Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, he returned to the screen (in costume) and dubbed the vocal tracks for some scenes that used puppetry. Anthony Daniels has also voiced C-3PO in a variety of videos, games, and other projects.
