Sci-Fi Scarborough organisers have announced another guest from Star Wars by bringing Mike Edmonds to the Spa Complex in March 2015.

Mike was the Ewok head Shaman Logray from Return of the Jedi - as well as being the puppeteer on Jabba’s tail - and has built up a stellar career in genre films such as The Dark Crystal, Flash Gordon, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Harry Potter.

He also famously played Og in the classic film Time Bandits as well as Little Ron in TV show Maid Marian alongside Danny John Jules who appeared at the inaugural event last April.

Mike joins the Star Wars unmasked panel on Star Wars Saturday alongside well known characters as Darth Vader (Dave Prowse), Greedo (Paul Blake), Oola (Femi Taylor) and Leesub Sirln (Pam Rose) with more to be announced in the coming weeks.

Co-organiser Andy Harness said: “He has such a great reputation on the circuit as such a friendly, knowledgeable and downright excellent chap and we are really looking forward to having him here, especially on the Star Wars Unmasked panel.”

The event is taking place on March 14 and 15. Earlybird tickets available from the Spa in person with no booking fees or from www.scarboroughspa.co.uk till New Year’s Day.
