I count myself extremely fortunate to have met six of the actors pictured here: Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) and Warwick Davis (the Ewok Wicket). Others are not to be: R.I.P. to film director Irvin Kershner (1923-2010) and actor Sir Alec Guinness (Obi-Wan Kenobi)(1914-2000). As for Director George Lucas and actor Harrison Ford (Han Solo) – good luck; they simply prefer not to mingle one-on-one with their Star Wars fans.
