Simon J. Williamson is the performer for Max Rebo and many other iconic characters, including principal Gamorrean Guard, a Mon Cal Officer and even the blinks of Nien Numb in Return of the Jedi.
If you’ve ever listened to this podcast before, you know how much I love the fascinating stories of the puppeteers and mime artists, especially from Jedi. And this is no exception.
Really buckle up because there's a pretty in-depth discussion about Max Rebo's biology (which has been researched in length by Mr. Pablo Hidalgo: https://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-mysteries-getting-to-the-bottom-of-max-rebo)
For more information about Mr. Williamson's upcoming appearances and his long and storied career with the Muppets and Jim Henson, go to his website: simonjwilliamson.co.uk or follow him on Twitter, appropriately, @RealMaxRebo.
