LANDO CALRISSIAN

 

“Card player, gambler, scoundrel…” I like him!

Lando was a terrific addition to the Star Wars universe when we first encountered him in The Empire Strikes Back. His inclusion indicated a much broader world for Han Solo and a deeper backstory of Han and Chewbacca. Smooth and smart, Lando appeared to have everything under control until nothing was under his control. He showed his mettle helping save Han from Jabba and then showed his courage leading the strike force against the second Death Star.

Lando was a popular enough character to receive his own series of novels in the 1980’s – the so-called Lando Calrissian Adventures – something that didn’t happen for any other character (except Han Solo).

Billy Dee Williams is so good in the role it’s no wonder he, at one time, was considered to play Han Solo himself.
