Summary:
C-3PO is one of Star Wars' most iconic characters, and Daniels is the man who knows him best. With his gleaming golden body and good-intentioned (yet worrisome) personality, the droid was there at the very beginning; he even spoke the first words uttered in any Star Wars movie. Daniels tells C-3PO's story in its entirety, from seeing the first concept images to the early stages of the final film. In the process, he tells his own story-- encounters with movie legends, the friendships he formed on-set, and the hardships, pain and in some cases real physical danger of being encased in a solid shell for countless hours. --

Summary

Summary

"Gloriously witty, keen and spirited" J.J. Abrams, Director of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

"The odds of me ever writing a book were approximately... Oh, never mind. My golden companion worries about such things - I don't. I have indeed now written a book - telling my story, in my voice, not his - recognising that our voices and our stories are inextricably intertwined."

When Star Wars burst on to the big screen in 1977, an unfailingly polite golden droid called C-3PO captured imaginations around the globe. But C-3PO wasn't an amazing display of animatronics with a unique and unforgettable voiceover. Inside the metal costume was an actor named Anthony Daniels.

In this deeply personal memoir, Anthony Daniels recounts his experiences of the epic cinematic adventure that has influenced pop culture for more than 40 years. For the very first time, he candidly describes his most intimate memories as the only actor to appear in every Star Wars film - from his first meeting with George Lucas to the final, emotional days on the set of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

With a foreword by J.J. Abrams and never-before-seen photography, this book is a nostalgic look back at the Skywalker saga as it comes to a close. I Am C-3PO: The Inside Story reveals Anthony Daniels' vulnerability, how he established his role and what he accomplished, and takes readers on a journey that just happens to start in a galaxy far, far away.


Author Notes

Anthony Daniels has appeared in more Star Wars movies than any other actor (10 of the 11 so far released or currently in production). In addition, as one of the first actors to become involved in the production of the original Star Wars in 1975, Daniels has a unique perspective on the creation of the entire Star Wars saga, spanning 40 years of incredible movie-making magic.
