    When is a "star" not a "star". Now seriously. Just getting your mug on screen in a Star Wars film does not make you worthy of signing autographs.
    Shall we throw up names of the unworthy ?

    I didn't even know Aurra Sing was in any of the movies. Where's she?

    Aurra Sing is on the ramp (I think) during the podrace in EpI.

    Sounds like a little bit of jealousy here.....if you guys were in a Star Wars movie, we'd hear all about and probably be asking for your autographs too!! I don't care, I just wish I was making the money they make for so little work!

    Ah well......good luck to them is what I say. If they can do it, all the better for them!
    :D

    Jealousy ? Ha !
    I'm not an actor, neither are they (unless they have several speaking parts).
    I'd rather stay the collector, they wouldnt have been paid LOTS for so little work.
    They're only famous cos of nerds like us worshipping them.

    That guy became Quinlan after the fact though I believe (i.e the writers wanted a new Jedi, saw that extra and decided to make him one).

    What about Aayla, Barris and Luminara, EI? None of them speak.

    E-I, they would be making lots just from appearances alone.....

    I've made the costume of an extended universe character, as have Adalia and many others. Besides, Aurra Sing is pretty big in comic books, as is Mara Jade and many of the others mentioned here.

    Is it a bad thing to like EU characters?

    Not liking them, no problem there. Just someone claiming to be that character (Mara in particular) that annoys me. She had a couple of photos, and then suddenly she is Mara Jade. Probably never read a book or even a bio on her.

    Can that be expanded to Voice Acting?

    Take a look at Star Wars Games? Bastila? people who think there Revan? People who think ther Kiera (thou that in it's self is cool but you would need to be old, like Real Old!)

    They have 'played' the character but do they know anything else about it? Me I don't think they do unless your an actor that really does in depth. Or already have a real like in Star Trek.

    And lets face it, George Lucas has this thing about getting supermodels in to play female characters. At least three female jedi in the last movie were models and none of them had lines? what makes them special and worth our worship.

    Yeah I know, I was being diplomatic and neutral. Of Course I am going to worship supermodel Jedi, even if there under three thousand layers of makeup hehe

    Settle down peoples.
    I'm making the point that "I" don't believe these people deserve our worship. Whether you actually do or don't doesn't impact on my feelings in the slightest.
    Now, that being said, a great man once said -
    "Luke, you'll find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view"
    MMMMMM.... think.....

    I do have a question about Aurra Singg and I'm hoping that answer may help me figure out why she is so big. The question is this-Wasn't she supposed to be a major character in Episode 2? Is she now in Episode 3 instead and whatever happened to her being in Episode 2?
    I have not read the spoiler sections about ROTS but ananswer to whether she's in it or not won't ruin it for me.

    thanks:)
    I just don't understand why they acted like she was a big deal then. We are we also going to celebrate the guy in the stands at the Podraces?
    You know, the one to the left in the blue? He was onscreen as much as she lol
