He has played in "Kojak," "Hardcastle and McCormick," "ER," "Ally McBeal," "Frasier," "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch," "The West Wing," "The OC," "Cold Case," "Stargate SG-1 "and was one of the main characters of the TV series" Stargate Atlantis ".
Born in Bristol in 1935, David Prowse played in the first trilogy of Star Wars the character of Darth Vader, thanks to its powerful build and height (2.01 meters). George Lucas, however, decided not to use the original voice of Prowse. Another anecdote emblematic of the relationship between Lucas and Prowse is the shooting of the scene of Darth Vader's death in Star Wars - Return of the Jedi. This scene, the one where you see the true face of Darth Vader, was shot in secret behind Prowse's back, who couldn't give his own face in that unique occasion.
Jeremy Bulloch is an english actor. He played the carachter of Boba Fett in the original Star Wars Trilogy.
Richard Arnold had been consultant for Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Gene Roddenberry's assistant and right hand. He actively participated to Star Trek behind the scenes helping scriptwriters and directors.
In the latest movie he played a Romulan of Nero's crew
Michael Bishop is considered one of the most important authors on the contemporary science fiction scene. He has won two Nebula awards and four Locus awards. He is representative of the tradition of a more rigorous SF (hard science fiction), its production is distinguished by innovative ideas and great care in finding narrative and stylistic solutions. Many of his works deal with the contact and conflict relationship between different cultures, humans and aliens, seen from a strongly anthropological and ethical point of view, but his area of interest is not limited to these issues as it is shown in his short stories and in his pastiche, which is an homage to P.K. Dick entitled "Philip K.Dick is dead, alas".
