– Daultay Dofine, The Phantom Menace

Today we might celebrate Alan Ruscoe at his 43rd birthday (born 1972).
The sources specifying his birthday are few and may not be reliable.

Alan Ruscoe played Daultay Dofine, Plo Koon and a pasty-skinned Twi’lek in the Phantom Menace. In Attack of the Clones he maybe have played Lott Dod, Gilramos Libkath or Rune Haako.

Chris Sanders did the voice for Daultay Dofine in The Phantom Menace.

Daultay Dofine is the captain of the Neimodian blockade over Naboo. He is killed when the Droid Control Ship is blown up by a Naboo starfighter.

Plo Koon is an alien Jedi Master and a member of the Jedi Council.

He was nicknamed “Bib Fortuna” during production because the similar appearance, but is not intended to actually be a young Bib Fortuna.

About Gilramos Libkath/Lott Dod/Rune Haako in Attack of the Clones:

Accourding to Wookiepeedia is it an extra named David Healey who played Gilramos Libkath/Lott Dod/Rune Haako in Attack of the Clones and not Alan Ruscoe.

The Keeper of the Holocron, Mr. Chee, also clearify that for all intents and purposes, the character seen with Nute Gunray in Attack of the Clones is Rune Haako. The confusion arose because the character’s name changed continuously during production. Some merely referred to the character as “Nute Aide.” It doesn’t help matters when you take into account that Nute’s voice is completely different than it is in The Phantom Menace. A different Neimoidian mask was also reportedly used. Nonetheless, it’s supposed to be Haako.

Whosoever played the character, and which character it was, he was voiced by Chris Truswell.
