It is always exciting to speak with someone involved in the original Star Wars trilogy who can give us first-hand stories of what it was really like to work on these epic films. Alan Fying was a Stormtrooper, Snowtrooper, and a Hoth Soldier in The Empire Strikes Back, and an Imperial Officer in Return of the Jedi. He shares never-before-heard, knock-your-socks-off stories about the making of Star Wars. If you see him signing autographs at Boonta Eve on April 6th, think up a fun question – Alan will give you a fun answer! 

Thanks to Spencer Jawitz and Frank Rich for helping to set up our conversation with Alan.

Read an article about Alan from author Eric Onkenhout.
