    I Am C-3PO

    Anthony Daniels

    Product Code: CTPO
    Hardback
    Hand-picked favourites
    We have a good feeling about this... If you're a Star Wars fan, you're going to love Anthony Daniels' autobiography, I am C-3PO.

    Anthony Daniels actually spoke the very first words in any Star Wars film ('Did you hear that? They've shut down the main reactor! We'll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.' - if it ever comes up in a pub quiz...) as the gold-plated and anxious droid C-3PO found himself on the same Imperial Star Destroyer as Darth Vader...

    Now, for the very first time Anthony candidly tells his (and C-3PO's) story in his own words - from his reaction to seeing a concept image in the mid-70s to his role in this years Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. He talks about fellow cast members including George Lucas, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher and offers an insight into the physical pain involved in being stuck in C-3PO's solid shell for hours on end in sweltering conditions.
