The team are happy to announce that Ted Western who played Merc Sunlet a thief from Tirac Munda in the famous Cantina scene from Star Wars: A New Hope will be joining us this September at Scifi Wales in Llandudno. Ted is known for his work as a prop master on properties such as Star Wars, Superman, Willow and James Bond, but has also worked in various acting roles throughout his career.

Ted's role in Star Wars came after he was ordered into costume for the cantina scene by George Lucas himself, with the scene having him appearing with Alec Guinness and Marc Hamill. Ted also appeared in the Massassi Temple scene in uniform on the presentation dais.
