Anthony Daniels is a British actor born in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England on February 21st, 1946. He is best known for playing the role of protocol droid C-3PO in the Star Wars franchise. Daniels first played the role of Threepio in the 1977 film Star Wars. Daniel reprised the role for the film's two sequels, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Following the first Star Wars film, Daniels also played the character in the critically-reviled 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special. He also played Threepio in episode 17 of season 4 of The Muppet Show where he was reunited with several of his Star Wars co-stars. In the episode, Threepio performs a dance routine for the audience with R2-D2. In 1985, Anthony Daniels took a break from wearing the uncomfortable droid costume, but wasn't quite ready to retire the character of Threepio altogether. He provided the voice for Threepio in all thirteen episodes of the Droids animated series. More than fifteen years after the release of Return of the Jedi, Daniels was back in costume for the three-film prequel trilogy beginning with 1999's Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. As before, Daniels reprised the role for the film's two sequels, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, albeit in a diminished capacity. Daniels also provided the voice for the character in the Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series and the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series. Along with co-star Kenny Baker (R2-D2), Anthony Daniels is the only other actor from the franchise to appear in all six Star Wars feature films.
