Biography: Anthony Daniels (born February 21, 1946 in Salisbury, England) is an actor best known for his role as the droid C-3PO in the "Star Wars" series of films made between 1977 and 2005. It is interesting to note that Daniels and Kenny Baker (who played R2-D2 in the series) are the only actors to play the same role in all six of them.
Aside from playing the fussy droid in all six movies, Daniels also voiced C-3PO in a radio serial based on the original trilogy and the animated series "Star Wars: Clone Wars." He also had a cameo in the nightclub scene of "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones" as Lieutenant Dannl Faytonni, the man in blue, who reacted after Obi-Wan strikes the bounty hunter Zam Wesell early in the film. Daniels was the voice of Legolas in The Lord of the Rings animated film.
Daniels has been politically active in the U.K., but he has kept his politics and his professional life completely separate.
According to Kenny Baker in the Examiner, Baker himself described Anthony Daniels as standoffish. Baker and Daniels have been feuding for three decades. Daniels, now 59, was never friendly to the other actors in the film, either. "Anthony doesn't mix at all," says Baker. "He keeps to himself." (SOURCE: The Examiner, May 30, 2005.)
