As one of the very few remaining actors – never mind characters – from the original trilogy, Anthony Daniels is something of a galactic treasure, so when he reveals that he believes someday he will be succeeded in the role of C-3PO it’s a sobering thought.

Speaking with the Radio Times about his memoirs I Am C-3PO: The Inside Story he discusses the thought of moving on from the role and someone else inhabiting the golden protocol droid.

“There are people wandering around Disney theme parks, dressed in rather better suits than mine. They seem to move a lot more easily.

“I absolutely admit and accept that. And quite right: he is too good of a character, too big of a character, to die with me. And Disney paid a lot of money for him! You know what I mean? They’ve got to get their money back somehow.”

While he is probably done wearing the physical suit, let’s hope Anthony will be voicing Threepio for many years to come.
