Boba Fett in Star Wars, 1980, 1983
From his early childhood in the 1950’s, Jeremy Bulloch has built a career on stage and screen that has lasted through to the present day. Roles in Billy Bunter, Summer Holiday, Mary Queen of Scots and Doctor Who are just some of the credits on his CV. Not bad for an actor who finally found fame playing a character whose face audiences never saw.
As Boba Fett, a bounty hunter in the original Star Wars trilogy, Jeremy managed to make a supporting character stand out so forcefully that even today he finds himself being invited all over the world to conventions. The Force is definitely still with him!
In this Myth Makers, Nicholas Briggs delves behind the costume and mask to find the actor beneath and discovers Star Wars treasures hidden in Jeremy’s attic.
