The City’s central computer told you? R2-D2, you know better than to trust a strange computer.

Today we celebrate Don Bies at his 54th birthday (born 1961)

Don Bies was born in Chicago, USA and played Barquin D’an and Boba Fett (flirting with the dancers in Jabba’s Palace) in Special Edition of Return of the Jedi. He also did small cameo appearance as a Pod Race Mechanic in The Phantom Menace and a appearance in the Outlanders Club in Attack of the Clones. But most of all is he a modelmaker for ILM and the most experienced R2-D2 operator in the world.
