    What did Han Solo say after C-3PO told him that the possibility of successfully navigating an asteriod field was approximately 3,720 to 1?

    "NEVER TELL ME THE ODDS!"

    Hayden was at C III. Well, he called into C III, but he did do an interview.

    Hayden was actually going to be there, but filming ran over in Italy I believe where he was making another flick.

    As for Indy comming to C4, never and I mean never gonna happen, but like Princess Leia said "your my only hope." LOL

    You may have a bit of trouble verifying who played Zuckass. There is a lady 'Catherine Munroe' from a UK convention agency (http://www.convention-guests.com/html/star_wars.html) claiming to be Zuckass but apparently theres talk on another forum that it wasnt her. Someone emailed her and she didnt know who she was so people 'thought' it was Zuckass only from her recollections. As with most minor roles in the OT, it was 'just another job'.

    Incidently, I would still like to see Ms. Munroe but the problem is that she probably knows nothing about Star Wars and wont be able to converse with fans, still I may be wrong.

    Also, what other minor characters on that site would you like to see make up the numbers at CIV? I think this is a good thread to do this in but if someone wants to create a seperate convention-guests.com thread please be guest. My nominations:

    OT:
    Catherine Munroe
    Hazel Allen
    Peter Roy
    Jerry Baker
    Tommy Weldin

    PT:
    Leroy James
    Mike Savva
    Andy Lawler
    Dave Sexton
    Kes Green
    Chantelle Barbieri (handmaiden honey!!)

    PT - Sandi Finlay.

    She didn't utter a single line that I'm aware of but 'Sly Moore' is just a scream in person!

    I was informed earlier today that the actor who played Dengar has passed on, and I do not know who was responsible for designing/creating the IG-88 statue (if he even does autograph sessions at conventions).

    So I guess there goes that autogrpah idea... :oops:

    Sandi is a riot! I saw her at the mall in Indy before CIII started, and then I sat next to her the whole flight home to San Francisco, along with about 12 other celebs.

    I'd love to get Friday Wilson's autograph, since Eirtaé is my favourite handmaiden. I would even rather have her than Keira.

    I am really looking foward to meeting Bruce Spence... He played Tion Medon in Revenge of the Sith...

    He was in The Matrix III, Mad Max III and Lord of the Rings III... We can call him the king of the threequels!

    Can anyone remember other films he was in??

    Has Denis Lawson ever done a Con or a Celebration? I would love to get Wedge's autograph :)

    I have yet to meet Amy Allen, who I'm hoping will be at CIV...

    Regarding Bruce Spence, you forgot Mad Max 2 (Road Warrior).

    Holy Crap!!! Is Mark Hamill really supposed to be there? If so, I'm on the way. He's my favorite actor of the SAGA and the one actor I've always wanted to meet. I've met Dave Prowse, Warrick Davis, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Jeremy Bullock, etc... But Mark would be a dream come true.

    At this point, Hamill has said on his website that he won't be at C4. However, maybe he just had that put up so people would stop asking him if he is going to C4. ;)

    Sorry, this isn't the Bruce Spence thread LOL. Talking about his appearance at C-IV is one thing, but anything else should go to the social thread.

    Jezika77, check IMDb for a list of Bruce Spence's movies. It's what I've been doing to see why some people are worth two autograph coupons (but I still don't know the answer to many of those).

    I'd really like to see all the Brits (mostly seen on Convention-Guests) attend CIV, I know that they will be attending CE but it would be terrific to hear the stories closer to home...and they do have some cool stories to tell. Some of those actors have quite a history.

    Peter Allen, Hazel Allen and their daughter Wendy Allen (Lattimer) were all in Return of the Jedi, not often in the saga has a family been together on the SW sets like that. So, it would be great to hear their stories.

    If anyone wants to see the background/credits of ANY of those actors they can go to the SWAD (Star Wars Actors Database) and look them up. I've been working closely with Convention-Guests to make sure their pages are complete and more names are added each month. Much work to do yet on the newer entries, there are still quite a few to add.

    I wouldn't mind meeting some of the voices at work on the Star Wars video games and the Radio Dramas and those who worked on the TV shows/movies. Some great names have added their talents to Star Wars in one way or another. Bob Bergen (voice of Porky Pig) and Frank Welker (Megatron - 80's Transformers) to name but two...they have stories far beyond Star Wars to tell!

    I'm excited to attend both CIV And CE!!

    Im going to TRY to attend both CIV and CE aswell but I doubt I'll still be in UK to go at that time. Im studying in Birmingham UK at the moment but I know i'll be back in the US by then, oh well we'll see.
    Looking forward to seeing Bruce Spence at CIV aswell and I too would like to see some of the new guests from UK at CIV, I read in another forum (are we allowed to name other forums here?) that folks are concerned CIV Is just going to be too similar to CIII. I hope this wont be the case.
    It'll be interesting to see what guests are going to CE... hope it doesnt eclipse CIV simply because UK has a wider pool of Star Wars actors

    I wonder what they mean by too similar -- we do after all, in a matter of speaking, have a finite subject to cover -- Star Wars! But think of the possibilities!

    I must say that "something similar" wouldn't bother me at all; that is, I have no problem going to the same type of panel, seeing the same type of guest, etcetera, etcetera. With the passage of time, there is always something new to discover, even from subjects that have been covered at other Celebrations. And, perhaps most importantly of all, you meet up with old friends and make new ones -- and you always find something interesting to talk about. That's the beauty, the value, of attending something like this. As the old cliche says, "everything old is new again" when you're talking with friends.

    Unless they are talking about the 6+ hour wait in line for the Store, having the Store run out of product on the first day, the surly Gen-Con volunteers, the whole George debacle, the rain and general crappy weather. But as Gen-Con is showing us it will be different but the same.

    The main problem i think is the die-hard autograph collectors!!! (sorry guys lol)
    They alraeady have most of the autographs from those at CIV and want the rare autographs the UK and AU sci-fi shows had recently. I didnt think of it at first but I can see their point, dont want to go to a show 'different but the same' ! lol
