When Boba Fett was introduced in ‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’, he only had about five lines and was totally silent on ‘Return of the Jedi‘, which created an aura of mystery around the character.
Already in ‘Boba Fett’s Book‘, he’s such a chatterbox… But of course he would have more lines when starring in his own TV series.
However, until Temuera Morrison, interpreter of the character, complained of this new aspect in his personality.
During an interview for the NME, the star joked that:
“I didn’t expect to have so many lines in the series. I thought I would talk a lot less from the 3rd episode. But the truth is, he is talking too much.”
He even commented that he tried to pass some of his lines to Ming-Na Wen, who interprets Fennec Shand.
“Actually, at first, I was trying to get my lines across to Ming-Na. I said, ‘Excuse me director, I really feel like Ming-Na should say these lines, because Fett needs to remain mysterious. It would be better if I kept quiet.”
So, are you also wondering about the change in Fett’s personality?
Check out the interview:
