Anthony Daniels: My Life as C-3PO

Part of London Literature Festival

Join Star Wars actor Anthony Daniels as he reflects on his time playing one of the most famous droids in cinematic history.

Daniels is best known for playing the golden droid C-3PO in all of the Star Wars films.

I am C-3PO: The Inside Story is a memoir of his and the character’s cinematic journey and an inside look at an unmatched movie saga.

The book spans decades, from the first time Daniels saw an early concept sketch of the droid who would dominate his professional life through to his last days on the set of the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Daniels is in conversation with Brian Herring, the lead puppeteer for rolling droid BB-8 in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Herring's other work includes Rogue One and Solo as well as Spitting Image, Prometheus, Hellboy II and numerous projects with the Jim Henson Company.
