Star Wars














JOE VISKOCIL

 

It's been a long time since we had an update to this page, but we couldn't resist the chance to talk to one of the pioneers from the original Star Wars, special effects technician (nee guru...) Joe Viskocil. Joe was responsible for developing the practical miniature effects such as the explosions in space which helped propel the film into a levelof believability never seen before on the big screen. It's very exciting to hear he's still working and still can count to ten (you'll see what we mean if you stay all the way to the end of the interview....).





A RANDOM WOOKIE
When you're at a convention with a nine-year old who'se been patiently waiting to interview a much sought after Dark Lord of the Sith and you've been standing in line for something like two and a half weeks you get a little punchy and you start to see things... like... well... like this. It's a moment we had to capture, and share with you.

TATOOINE'S MOST WANTED
At SFX 2003 in Toronto, ON, as we were waiting for our interview with Ray Park, we met up with one of Emperior Palpatine's finest, a Stormtrooper who used The Colin Reboy Show as a vehicle to demand -- er...We mean "ask for" (Don't wanna make the Dark Lord angry...) -- the public's help in tracking down some scufflaws.

MATTHEW STOVER
Of course, Star Wars is a multi-media phenomenom. So it is our great pleasure to present TV's Colin's 2005 interview with the very genial Matthew Stover, author of several Star Wars books, including "Shatterpoint", and, most famously, the novelization of "Revenge of the Sith. Our thanks to Barnes and Noble in Amherst, NY for making this interview possible.

CHARLES ROSS
So, how many actors does it take to inhabit the Star Wars Universe? If you happen to be Charles Ross, just one! Mr. Ross met with TV's Colin at the University of Buffalo just days before taking his "One-Man Star Wars" show to Broadway. We particularly enjoyed his story about his close encounter with Vin Diesel.

MATTHEW WOOD
In keeping with tradition, we present another interview with a Star Wars baddie who turned out to be a very nice guy! Here's Matthew Wood, the voice of General Grievous in "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith." No matter how many times you've seen the film, we'll bet that you wouldn't have recognized him by his vastly different normal speaking voice!

RAY PARK
Ray Park actually celebrated his birthday in 2003 by appearing at SFX...And the Colin Reboy Show! He was one of the busiest guests at the show that year, but still managed to be very generous with his time. You wouldn't know it from watching, but Ray had just put in a good eight hours on the show floor signing autographs with virtually no breaks!



............................................................................................................................................................................................................
DAVID PROWSE
Another terrific guest from SFX 2003 was David Prowse. He agreed to do the interview, and clearly expected that all the tiny little boy next to him would care about was Darth Vader. But, although they touched upon that aspect of his long and varied career, they spent much more time talking about other things, from Frankenstein to Stanley Kubrick to Shakespeare. It was a joy to watch him relax and enjoy himself. Just watch the look on his face as the interview progresses.


.............................................................................................................................................................................................................
DANIEL LOGAN
He may have given one of the scariest performances by a child actor ever as Young Boba Fett in "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones", but when Colin met him at the 2005 Motor City Comic Con, Daniel Logan proved to be just about as nice and unaffected a young man as you could possibly imagine. He even took the time to give Colin a lot of useful advice on how to present himself on camera.
