Sam Witwer did an interview with Yahoo! TV that focused on his role as Darth Maul in the upcoming season finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Some parts of the Q&A will be familiar to fans who have read previous TCW-related interviews with Witwer. However, there are also interesting tidbits like this one:
Did you do a lot of research on the character of Darth Maul when you took the role?
I somehow know a lot of Expanded Universe stuff when it comes to what flavor of fan I am. I wouldn't say I'm one of the hardcore "I've read everything" guys. I know all of the movies very well. I certainly read a lot of comics. When I came to Darth Maul, I wanted to have an awareness of what had been done. The intentions of everyone are not to invalidate any stories that have been told about him thus far. I don't think anything conflicts with what's already out there. I wanted to be aware of where his character comes from in terms of the other sources that depict him. What they did with those stories is they kept him very true to the film. He's very soft-spoken and an amazing warrior. They kept it in that area.
