As some of you may know, this site has been around since 1996. That’s over 25 years. During that time, I have moved the site over and over again to various servers, switched to hand-coded HTML over to several content management systems, and have lost much of the old content and design along the way for various reasons.
I have various files and drives all over the place and on multiple storage devices. I managed to keep most of the Deleted Scenes sections in tact, along with some other editorials, but most of the content is either lost of needs to be found somewhere. Sometimes I come across some old content and find myself motivated enough to repost it. In this case, I came across a folder full of HTML that contained many of my early interviews with various actors, artists, crew members, and more. I went through the folder and left out some of the less important things but found some charming old interviews conducted mostly via e-mail by a young T-bone, who might not have been the best interviewer at the time, but still got some cool factoids out of those involved.
I had a blast reading through them. Some of them are slightly edited and cleaned up for better readability and removal of things like broken links. They read a bit better but I think you’ll enjoy them. There are some heavy hitters like Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Michael Sheard, and Dave Prowse, plus some other great people like stunt coordinator Peter Diamond, R2-D2 maker Tony Dyson, Jabba puppeteer Toby Philpott, Fan Club guru Dan Madsen, artists Tsuneo Sanda, Joe Corroney, Randy Martinez, writers like Steve Perry and Ann Crispin, and so many others.
Please head over to the Interviews section of the site to begin your journey. When you get there, you’ll see some pagination at the very bottom that will take you to more interviews. Have a nice little trip down memory lane and please let me know what you think in the comments. Enjoy!
