Soon the Rebellion will be crushed and young Skywalker will be one of us.

-The Emperor, Return of the Jedi

Today we remember Richard Marquand at his birthday (born 1938)

Richard Marquand was born in Wales, UK and he was the director for Return of the Jedi. He also played Major Marquand and did the voice on set for EV-9D9 in the same movie.

Major Marquand is one of two AT-ST drivers in the vehicle that Chewbacca and two Ewoks landed on.

EV-9D9 (or Eve-Ninedenine) is the sadistic female taskmaster in charge of Cyborg Operations at Jabba’s palace. On set, director Richard Marquand provided his voice to the droid puppet, but it was redubbed during post-production.
