Production Runner
'Star Wars: Episode II - Attack Of The Clones'
2002 (1 year)
I was the runner in the production office with George Lucas and Rik McCallum during the Star Wars re-shoots over a couple of months in Ealing Studios with all the principal cast - Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Samuel L Jackson and Christopher Lee. I shared an office with George Lucas and Rik and brought them sushi every day, as well as once being a last minute stand-in for Christopher Lee (same height 6'6") in a light-sabre fight with Hayden Christensen shot against green screen, which George of course directed. 'Do you know how to use one of these' he said as he passed me a light-sabre, to which I replied 'Yes of course, I've been doing it since I was 6'.
