Personal Quote:

[on his role in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)] Panaka's Captain of the Guard. The way I conceived of the role is that he is very tough, and I figured the tougher I was, the tougher it would make the Jedi seem. Obviously, no one out-toughed the Jedi, but Captain Panaka was going to give them a run for their money!
