Star Wars: The Casting // Pictures by Lucasfilms (1983)
One of the biggest strengths of the Star Wars Saga is their very consistent cast of characters. For the original saga we had for all the three films (l to r, top to bottom): Mark Hammil as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia Organa, Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Frank Oz as Master Yoda, Kenny Baker as R2-D2, Anthony Daniels as C3PO, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, Dave Prowse as Darth Vader (with James Earl Jones as the voice of the character), Jeremy Bullock as Boba Fett and Sir Alec Guiness as Obi-Wan Kenobi, just to name a few!
Mara Jade is a character of the Star Wars expanded universe (a continuation of the Star Wars myths developed as prose and comic books). She’s introduced passing as a smuggler but secretly works for Emperor Palpatine with the sole mission of killing Luke Skywalker in a series of novels called The Thrawn Trilogy. She eventually falls in love and marries the Jedi. The character proved so popular among fans in the 90’s that Lucasfilm picked model Shannon McRandle to be the official image and face for her at conventions and events related to the brand.
