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.
“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.
