Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Terence: For all the great entertainment George Lucas has given us, for the chance he gave me to play a small part in his first three films, and for making the Bay Area home to his magical movie-making genius, I'm indebted to him. I don't think you'll find an actor who's ever been involved with Lucas who wouldn't say the same. May the force always be with him!

    • Terence: First of all, my involvement with the production of Star Wars was minuscule. Probably three hours total of post production time. But being a voice in one of the greatest movies in the history of film--and having an inadvertent part in the naming of one of its main characters--has always been a source of pride for me.

  • Talented and funny.

    Terence McGovern is a talented and funny voice over actor who has worked on several series as a voice over actor and regular actor. His most known role was as Launchpad McQuack in the Disney cartoon series Ducktales and Darkwing Duck. This was one of my favorite characters to watch when I was younger, especially the Darkwing Duck series. Terence McGovern also made up a word that has now become famous, especially to all the Star Wars fans when he blurted out the word "wookie" when he was working on the set of THX1138 and George Lucas hear him. I will always remember the hilarious voice of the character, Launchpad McQuack, and associate it with Mr. McGovern.moreless
