Personal Quotes (1)

[on his costume as Tion Medon in Star Wars] "It was a huge contribution to my character. It's one of those things that just adds up to thins here, too. I felt almost priestlike when it was on, and that's when I thought, I'm the administrator of this planet, but that role carries extra responsibilities. Especially when I put on this costume that has accumulated over eons. The significance of all the different pieces goes back and has evolved over many years"
