It’s hard out there for a droid, and especially so for those that play them. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” star Alan Tudyk — who lent his voice to ex-Imperial droid K-2SO — has only had a few encounters with C-3PO himself Anthony Daniels, and it appears as though Daniels has a few choice words for Tudyk.
“He came to the set while we were shooting and I met him. I went up and met him and said I was a droid, and he knew knew of me. Small club!” Tudyk recalled. “C-3PO said — or Anthony Daniels said — went on about the suit that he had to wear: ‘Originally, they put screws in my head, they closed it’ and he had to be on this thing and he said, ‘Wait a minute, are you wearing an actual robot costume or are they doing it motion capture?’ And I said, ‘Motion capture.’ And he said, ‘You shit.'”
Of course, Tudyk’s story about Daniels seems to be in good fun. After all, Daniels had to wear a full-body suit in a desert in order to film his role, where Tudyk would have to do less of the grunt work thanks to how far film technology has advanced. However, that’s not all Daniels had to say on the matter.
“And then I saw him at the premiere, and I said hello again. And I said, ‘I’m going to ask you for notes when this is over, so if you could please tell me how I did,'” Tudyk shared. “And I saw him at the party afterwards and he came up and said, ‘Fuck you.’ And that’s one of the best compliments I got!”
In the video, Tudyk also quips about meeting BB-8 and calls the beloved ball droid “a drunk,” though he also jokingly complimented the droid’s work in “Castaway.”
Directed by Gareth Edwards from a script by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker and is now in theaters.
