Continuing in filling the void that is a distinct lack of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, we're joined by the voice of 'Lil Boba himself, Daniel Logan!
MandyB: Daniel, can I call you Dan? Ok, Dan... how are you?
Daniel Logan: Dan is fine. I am great, hope you are too. Thanks for taking the time to do an interview with me!
MB: You've really grown-up with the franchise. Did you ever anticipate and/or imagine having this type of fan base?
DL: Not at all. I did not really understand it until I went to my first convention, Celebration II in Indianapolis. I was amazed at how many people were there and how enthusiastic they were about Star Wars. Still to this day I am excited about each and every appearance I make at a convention. Star Wars fans are the best!
MB: For the very few of our fans that might not have been following your career closely, what have you been up to since AOTC?
DL: I have moved out to southern California. I have been going to school and taking acting classes. I have really been trying to grow up and work on myself. I am now 22 and ready to push my career in acting.
MB: You and Lucasfilm recently announced your appearance as 'Lil Boba in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. How did this come about?
DL: I was called last year by the casting director for The Clone Wars - early last year. They asked if I would like to come back and play Boba Fett again. And without even having to think, I said YES! I was not only excited, but much honored to be asked back.
MB: Is this your first experience with voice acting? Do you think there will be more voice acting in your future?
DL: No, I did do a couple of other voice acting jobs while I was still in New Zealand. One was called Takapu and he was a gannet that flew around the south Pacific islands showing the different cultures and beauties of the islands. It still runs on New Zealand TV to this day.
MB: Is there absolutely anything you can tell us about the live-action series if, say, you were presumably involved?
DL: Sorry, nothing to say on that front. Wish there was. But I am sure whatever comes of the live-action series, it will be great! And let’s hope Boba is involved!
MB: On the other hand, are there any upcoming projects you can discuss with us?
DL: Nothing too much to report. Just have been busy working on and promoting The Clone Wars for now.
MB: Seriously, I know you're holding out on us... Give me some juicy details!
DL: OK, the juicy details are…
MB: Do you have a favorite moment from the filming of AOTC?
DL: There were so many! I had a great time with all the cast and crew on AOTC. They all treated me like family and made the time I was on set comfortable and relaxed. One of my favorite memories was racing the golf carts with Ewan McGregor. We did get into trouble a few times, but that did not stop us! The entire filming process was an experience I will always cherish!
MB: Are you familiar with our particular brand of high blood pressure, the Expanded Universe? If so, thoughts?
DL: I believe it is also referred to as the EU. I have read a few books and comics. They are very interesting. I love some of the stories that have been told in the EU. I think it is great and helps carry the legacy of Star Wars.
MB: Here’s your chance: Do you have anything you want to say to all the fans out there?
DL: I just want to say thanks for all the support over the years! Without you guy, Boba Fett and Star Wars would not be what it is today. You have all been so kind and supportive over the years. Here’s to many, many more years of Boba Fett and Star Wars!
MB: Dan, you've been a great sport. Good luck on all your future acting endeavors, and we look forward to seeing you at CV!
