Born: August 11, 1944 in Carnoustie, Tayside, Scotland, UK
[on digitally replacing Clive Revill in the DVD release of Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980)] George felt that it was just and proper. When he made Empire, we hadn’t met, and he didn’t have a particular idea of who would play the Emperor or how the character would develop. And he had no notion that he would do the backstory – Episodes I, II, and III. So whoever played the Emperor in a mask and added to Revill’s voice wouldn’t seem authentic to the people who are going to watch the entire saga in the right order. It wouldn’t make any sense. Since I was the Emperor [in the other Star Wars films], it felt appropriate that I should be inserted into Empire, and that’s what George did.
