DELETED SCENE: WORMIE'S REFUGE!


Before "Wormie" arrives! Image via STAR WARS ARCHIVES website.

The most detailed image yet showing the interior of the Tosche Station at Anchorhead- scenes filmed in April of 1976, upon THE STAR WARS cast’s return to Elstree from Tunisia. Camie (Koo Stark) and Fixer (Anthony Forrest) get a little bit of quality time together whilst the caped Biggs (Garrick Hagon, to their right) plays a futuristic game version of Pool (a lit table board of electronics, according to hand written production notes) opposite friends Deak (played by Jay Benedict) and Windy (actor unknown). Beyond the outside window can be seen a landspeeder (Luke's redressed, with the full exterior transparent dome (previously dropped) now atop and two extra power pods added-this new craft presumably belonging to Fixer), the head of a droid (played by Jack Purvis) that can be seen behind Windy and walks across shot (left to right) at the start of the deleted scene (available on the 2011 Blu-ray), and an outline of some kind of beast of burden-possibly the relatively inert Jerba beast prop that had been prior used on location.
 
Interior stage shot at Elstree, taken by John Jay.

Script Supervisor Ann Skinner’s continuity notes for this scene are thin, of which she only took two Polaroids (one of the lit table in front of Camie and Fixer, and another of the spare parts shelves to the far left of the shoot near them), but we at least have her important costume character details/notes for Deak and Windy, a pair who seemingly had no reference photos taken that we are aware of.

Deak: High yellow shirt, fastener undone and front side hanging down off waist jacket, one belt with pouches over, short beaker. (Note: of which Deak can be seen holding drink in the above top shot- Editor).

Windy: Blue shirt/jacket-over black round neck sweater under, tall beaker.
