Femi Taylor was born in Nigeria and played the dancer Oola in Return of the Jedi. She returned for additional scenes in Special Edition 14 years later looking remarkably unchanged.

Wookiepedia states that she was 22 yeras old when she get the role as Oola. In that case she was born 1959/1960 and in her late 30th when she return for The Special Edition.

Read an interview with Femi Taylor at her first ever convention appearance, in Houston.

Oola is a beautiful green-skinned Twi’lek dancer, enslaved to Jabba the Hutt.

There is a fan site for Oola at Facebook.
