Personal Quotes (1)
[on filming his Gold Leader parts on Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)]I got into the cockpit to do this scene and George said 'Have you learnt your lines out of sequence?' and I said 'What are you talking about?' and he said 'Just your lines,' and I said, 'No...I've learnt my lines with the cues,' you know, somebody cues me and I talk... He said 'No, just do your lines.' And so we started shooting and it was just a nightmare. I mean, it turned into a s---storm because I couldn't remember anything without the cues. I needed that other voice to respond to, so I kept drying. I knew the lines perfectly well, I just couldn't remember them. I thought, 'What am I going to do here?' and I started sweating, so I needed a make-up artist there with a mop. I mean, I was sweating; buckets. I was in a flat panic and George came and said 'Well, can you read them?' and I said 'Yeah, let's do that.' I was so panicked at that point that I would have done anything. If he'd said, 'You need some heroin,' I would have rolled my sleeve up. So, I had a piece of script on this leg, a piece of script on this leg and I had a chunk of script above me and a chunk of script over here. So, we shot the whole thing and I read the stuff off. There's no performance - in that sense - at all. It's just reading lines and I thought, 'I don't care. I've just got to get out of here.'
