  • Trivia

    • In his Starlog magazine interview for their November 1989 issue, #148, Tony Jay stated that he was the first to be approached by George Lucas to play the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars. Lucas at the time stated that he was looking for relatively unknown actors as a large amount of the film's budget would be going to special effects and he couldn't afford to pay big-name actors. Jay never heard anything else from Lucas and later discovered Alec Guinness was given the role.
