June 22, 2020

In this week's episode, Rutvig talks to actor and super tall person (7'1"!) Ross Sambridge.

Ross performed as one of the Snoke body doubles from the film Star Wars:  The Last Jedi, as well as playing a Wookiee slave in the spin off film, Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The original interview was conducted in November 2018, so the discussion doesn't touch on anything learned in The Rise of Skywalker. But we do talk about the process and learn some things about how that incredible CG character was brought to life on screen.
