Anthony Daniels was at New York Comic Con at the weekend and may well have dropped a clangar in vonfirming his involvement in Star Wars: Episode VII.
The C3PO actor was talking to the audience when a number of questions came his way.
Below is the exchange, courtesy of The Bearded Trio:
Audience member: You’re the only actor who did all six movies.
AD: Yeah. I’m the only one who did all six movies.
Audience: And maybe seven?
AD: That was sneaky, sneaky, sneaky. There was a “Clones War” movie, I think, I’m not sure about that. I lose track. Yes, I’m the only actor to be in all seven, because either people died or they got -
AD: Six, whatever!
AD: I didn’t mean it. [Daniels looks up, and begins speaking to George Lucas at the imaginary hidden cameras.] I was just teasing them! All right, I’ll see you later then.
Obviously we won’t know until Lucasfilm confirms such news but it would be surprising if we don’t see 3PO in the new trilogy.
