Yub nub! On the final of three very special Star Wars trilogy episodes of I Was There Too, Matt is joined by Kevin Thompson who played the Ewoks Chubbray and Paploo in the original 1983 film Return Of The Jedi. Kevin tells us how he went from being a street mime to auditioning for the movie, how they shot swinging off the speeder bike, and the true danger that comes from being in the stunt world. He also talks about his role as Bear in the 1982 film Blade Runner and his reaction to finally getting his own Star Wars action figure. Plus, yet another classic Star Wars Superego sketch!
