Fantha Tracks will be at Star Wars Fan Fun Day and joining the show is an actor from the sequel trilogy.
We are thrilled that Arie Dekker will be joining us at this year’s swffd.
Arie Dekker is a British Actor and Stuntman, born on the Wirral, Merseyside. In his youth he was a talented sportsman, most notably a swimmer, winning medals at County, National and European competitions. Arie is best known for his role as Chewbacca’s stunt double in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’. At 6ft 11 his physicality, high level of fitness and mental toughness made him an ideal candidate to truly showcase Chewbacca’s fighting skills and warrior lineage. Arie spent many months perfecting the movements of the character to ensure his performance matched seamlessly to Joonas Suotamo’s.
Other credits include a stunt double role in the upcoming Amazon Original ‘Carnival Row’, as Chewbacca in a Nissan/Star Wars Commercial and again as Chewbacca during a European promotional tour that included an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival.
Tickets and photo shoots are on sale until midnight on Sunday.
Arie joins previously announced guests Keith De’Winter, Hugh Quarshie, Kenny Lee, Tim Rose, Julie Dolan, Russell Balogh, Mary Oyaya, Michael Culver, Sian Phillips and Dilu Miah. Mark Lewis JOnes and Paul Springer are sadly unable to attend.
Fantha Tracks will be at the show, and we’ll be sure to bring you all the guest news as it develops.
