Let the executions begin!
– Poggle the Lesser, Attack of the Clones
Today we celebrate Marton Csokas at his 49th birthday (born 1966)
Marton Csokas is the voice of Poggle the Lesser in Attack of the Clones. He was born in Aotearoa, New Zeeland to a Hungarian father and an Irish/Danish mother.
Poggle the Lesser is the Archduke of Geonosis, he was the leader of the Geonosians. Apart from the other Geonosians Poggle wears the insectoid equivalent of a long beard.
The Geonosians was computer-generated characters. Their voices was developed very late in production. Sound Designer Ben Burtt delivered a suitably bizarre mix of guttural speech and clicking insect sounds.
