Alan Harris-- (Actor-- Bossk from "Star Wars")
Alan Harris IS Bossk from the "Star Wars" movies: "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi." And does he have some behind the scenes stories to share!
In "Empire Strikes Back," Alan was already acting as one of the stand ins for actor Anthony Daniels (C3PO), as well as portraying a Storm Trooper from time to time, when he was tapped to take on the role of the Trandoshan bounty hunter, Bossk. The character became so popular that it has spawned many stories and comic books of his own, and is featured in the “Bounty Hunter Wars,” trilogy, and other volumes.
In "Return of the Jedi," the character became so "in demand" during that filming, that Alan, again one of the stand ins for Anthony Daniels who was in most of the scenes, sometimes had very little time to go from CP3O mode to getting into and out of his Bossk costume!
Aside from the wildly popular bounty hunting bad boy, Harris had his hand (and actually whole BODY), in other "Star Wars" facts and fun as well:
For example: Alan was engaged for the development of the Boba Fett costume. "Three months before filming started, at the concept stage, they built the Boba Fett costume around me," explains Harris. "Boba Fett was originally meant to be a Super Trooper and would launch from a space ship using the rocket that can be seen in his back pack, and be able to fire at the enemy on the ground. I was totally unaware of the flame thrower built in the costume. When they tested it, it gave me quite a fright."
He was also the body for "Han Solo in Carbonite."
"When the plaster cast was dry they cut my face out and put Harrison Ford’s in. Kershner and I were looking at the finished product on set and Harrison came over and said he was thinking of turning one of these into a coffee table. I don’t know if he ever did,” he laughs.
Programming Notes: Alan is available for signing, photo ops, and for panels about the making of "Star Wars." (Specific booking details apply.)
Jesse Blaze Snider-- (Actor, Singer, Voice Actor, Host)
Chris Parsons-- (Actor, 4-LOM from "Star Wars")
Born in London in 1960, Chris Parsons would soon find himself in the "galaxy far, far, away" via his involvement in the Star Wars saga of the late 1970's and early 1980's!
His various work in the trilogy includes:
Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) in which he portrayed: C-3PO (double), K-3PO, E-3PO, R-3PO, a Death Star Droid, a Stormtrooper, Snowtrooper, a Hoth Rebel soldier and a Hoth Snow Speeder pilot.
All making his stories from the set varied and insightful.
Chris has also been in various other Television and film productions including: Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Quadrophenia, Superman ll, Yentl, The Shining and James Bond.
But of all his various work, the one most resonating with Star Wars fans is his portrayal of 4-LOM, the Bounty Hunter. 4-LOM is remembered as the cold, calculating and ambitious LOM-series protocol droid, resembling the insectoid species he was designed to serve, who overrode his programming and became an intergalactic thief and later a bounty hunter, often working with Grand Findsman Zuckuss.
Butch Patrick-- Actor/ Munster Car Display
HAMID THOMPSON-- (BLUE from "Jurassic World")
“Jurassic World” is one of the top grossing movies of all time. The reason why is simple: DINOSAURS. Meet Hamid Thompson, actor, dancer, stunt person. Also known as the Rator BLUE from the blockbuster film!
Originally from Ann Arbor Michigan, Hamid Thompson IS Blue in the movie, all the interactions with the main actors, and the creature that drove much of the story, was motion captured with Hamid acting the part!
In case you haven't seen Golem in "Lord of the Rings," or Hamid's performance in "Jurassic World," Motion-Capture Acting (or MoCap), is a type of acting in which an actor wears markers or sensors on a skintight bodysuit or directly on the skin. Several cameras from different angles record the actor's movements.
Hamid Thompson's other credits include "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back" (2016), "Kenau" (2016) and "Chi-Rag" (2015), among others.
Now is a great opportunity to book Hamid Thompson into your convention or event and hear about his world.
