He also played a Mon Calamari officer and assisted Mike Quinn in his masterful puppeteering of Nein Numb.

Simon was one of the foremost mime artist/creature performers in film/tv industry in the early 1980’s. You will have seen his work in Star Wars Return of the Jedi, Jim Henson’s Dark Crystal, Frank Oz’s Little Shop of Horrors, and in three Muppet films. Outside the world of Star Wars he is also an actor, writer and director.
