Who else has been nominated?”

“Bail Antilles of Alderaan and Ainlee Teem of Malastare.

Last Saturday I should have celebrated Adrian Dunbar at his 52nd birthday (born 1958)

Adrian Dunbar was born in Northern Ireland, UK and played Bail Organa in deleted scenes in The Phantom Menace. Bail Organa was then recast with Jimmy Smits for Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. Dunbar’s likeness instead became Bail Antilles. Bail Antilles is the Senator of Alderaan during the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo.

Bail Antilles was nominated, along with Senators Palpatine of Naboo and Ainlee Teem of Malastare, to succeed the ousted Chancellor Valorum.

Bail Antilles, Wedge Antilles and Captain Raymus Antilles are not related, Antilles is just a common name in the galaxy far far away. There is no Colton Antilles in the movies. “Captain Antilles” who get strungled by Darth Vader in A New Hope, is the same Captain Antilles that Bail Organa assigns the droids to in Revenge of the Sith.
