CLASSIC IMAGE: THE 'SABER AND THE VALIANT!

Posed publicity image for Lucasfilm by Mathew Rolston.

The Scottish actor made a terrific surprise appearance for SW fans during a 2017 screening marathon in California:

AFICIONADO continues to cross its fingers that a standalone Kenobi 'Anthology' film will eventually happen...
