At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last we will have revenge.
– Darth Maul, The Phantom Menace
Today we celebrate Ray Park at his 44th birthday (born 1974)
Ray (Raymond) Park was born in Glasgow, Scotland and played Darth Maul and a Naboo Royal Guard in The Phantom Menace. Ray Park is present on Facebook and with a personal website but none of them is updated the last years. But if you want to know about his background in Martial Arts read his website.
Ray Park had a small, silver earring when sitting down to do the Darth Maul makeup, and it was only noticed later. But George Lucas said he liked it, so the earring stayed.
Darth Maul is a Zabrak from Dathomir. He is the apprentice of Darth Sidious and fights with a double-bladed lightsaber.
Naboo Royal Guard is the security forces protecting the Queen and her people.
