Negotiation? We’ve lost all Communications!
…and where are the Chancellors Ambassadors?
– Sio Bibble, The Phantom Menace
Today we celebrate Oliver Ford Davies at his 76th birthday (born 1939)
Oliver Ford Davies was born in London, England and played Sio Bibble in The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
Oliver Ford Davies was not available to shoot his scenes as Sio Bibble during the principal photography of Attack of the Clones in Italy. He was shooting another film during that period and was in play. Nine month later when George Lucas filmed the factory scenes in England, Oliver Ford Davies scene was shot on a bluescreen stage, and digitally inserted into the scene shot in Italy.
Sio Bibble is the governor of Naboo during the Trade Federation blockade of the planet.
