Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?

– Chancellor Palpatine, Revenge of the Sith

Today we celebrate Hassani Shapi at his 42nd birthday (born 1973) Source

Hassani Shapi was born in Mombasa, Kenya and played Jedi Eeth Koth in The Phantom Menace. When we see him in the Jedi Council in Attack of the Clones it is re-used footage from Episode I.

To play Eeth Koth in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith the role was given to Tux Akindoyeni. But even if he wore the same costume and make-up as Hassani Shapi he looked so different that they made a new character named Agen Kolar.

Jedi Master Eeth Koth is an iridonian zabrak and was a member of the Jedi Council when Anakin was first introduced.

Jedi Master Agen Kolar is a zabrak and fought in the Geonosian arena together with his Padawan Tan Yuster. Tan Yuster is killed during the Geonosian arena battle.
