HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PETER MAYHEW!
Star Wars legend has it that Peter Mayhew showed up for an audition for A New Hope and got the role of Chewbacca the minute George Lucas laid eyes on him. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I do know that playing Chewbacca is more than just wearing the costume. What we love about the Wookie has much to do with Mayhew’s performance.
Happy 71st birthday, Peter Mayhew!
