    Star Wars guests include:
    John Coppinger - played Wookie Senator Yarau and Graxol Kelvynn in "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith." But he is best known to fans of the "Star Wars" universe as the man who sculpted the infamous Jabba the Hutt in "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi" and is responsible for some of film history's greatest animatronic engineering. His technical expertise can also be seen in "The Dark Crystal," "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace," "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," "Babe," "The Mummy," "Just Visiting," and "The Fifth Element."

    Mike Edmonds - a British actor well-known for his role as Little Ron in the children's television show "Maid Marian and Her Merry Men." Edmonds can also be seen dancing in Men Without Hats music video, "The Safety Dance." Yet, Mike is best known for his appearances in films like "Flash Gordon," "The Dark Crystal," "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," and as Og in Terry Gilliam's classic adventure, "Time Bandits." In "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi," Mike was responsible for operating Jabba the Hutt's tail as part of "Team Jabba." He also portrayed Ewok Logray in the film.

    Alan Flyng - appeared in two of the original trilogy Star Wars films: as an Imperial Storm Trooper in "Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back" and as an Imperial Officer on the Executor in "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi." Yet, it is more than 30 years of experience in designing costumes and supervising wardrobe departments that has put Alan in some classic TV movies like "Ellis Island," "War and Remembrance," and the "Horatio Hornblower" tele-films. On the big screen, Alan has worked on "Hamlet," "Shining Through," "Restoration," "Redemption Road," and "Ronin."

    Derek Lyons - Born in London, he was fortunate enough to meet the legendary stage and screen actor, Sir Nigel Hawthorne, who encouraged him to think about working within the acting profession and generously agreed to sponsor his application to join British Actor's Equity. Derek's big breakthrough was in two different roles in 1977's "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope," as the Medal Bearer and a Massassi Guard at the end of the film. He has also appeared in "Flash Gordon," "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace," "Krull," "The Living Daylights," "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," "The Razor's Edge," "Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade," "Goldeneye," and many others films. Derek has also worked on plenty TV productions, including "French & Saunders," "Ellis Island," "Red Dwarf," "Secret Diary of a Call Girl," and portrayed PC Craig Lovell in "The Bill" from 1987 to 1991.

    Toby Philpott - ("Team Jabba") spent 33+ years as a self-employed performer and teacher. He has played many parts, but he is probably best known for performing as half of Jabba the Hutt in "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi." Toby has also appeared in "The Dark Crystal" and "Labyrinth," and has puppeteered for "The Little Shop of Horrors" and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit."
