UPLINK 08: STAR WARS ROBOT SPECIAL WITH C-3PO ACTOR ANTHONY DANIELS!
Thank the maker! We’re very excited to be back with a very special Uplink livestream on Star Wars Day – that’s Monday May the 4th of course – featuring robot specialist Shahrzad Timman and none other than Anthony Daniels! The odds of this happening are 3,720 to one, but never tell us the odds!
You might remember space robot engineer Shahrzad from Space Rocks London 2019 where she held a fascinating talk on a Beginner’s Guide To Space Robots. Shahrzad will be telling us all about the present and future of robotic exploration ahead of an audience with the man who played a beloved golden droid from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
Legendary actor Anthony Daniels should of course require no introduction! Having played protocol droid C-3PO for four decades throughout the whole Star Wars series – from 1977’s Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope onwards – Anthony is the only actor to have appeared in all nine movies of the entire sci-fi epic! His new book, I Am C-3PO is out now and you can check it out here.
This episode of Uplink not to be missed. To join us live, plug yourself into the hyperdrive for 3pm (BST) / 4pm (CEST) on Monday May 4th at our YouTube channel here and make sure you subscribe for more exciting announcements! See you then. In the meantime, watch out for those filthy Jawas and don’t forget your oil bath. And May The Force Be With You.
