Other information

He's in Star Wars, playing Commander Praji, having a conversation with Darth Vader on the rebel ship in the opening scene! He has the following lines:-
"Lord Vader - the battle station plans are not on board this ship and no transmissions were made. An escape pod was jettisoned during the fighting, but no life-forms were aboard." (doesn't sound like him because his lines were revoiced by someone doing an American accent, which is ironic!)
