This interview is posted on a somewhat sleazy-looking website (the original source seems to be The Daily Mail) but it is still interesting to see what Ahmed Best has to say and what he’s been up to lately:
UK filmmaker Jamie Stangroom tracked down the actor as part of his These Are The Actors You’re Looking For series, in which he interviews stars of the original trilogy and their prequels, before ‘auditioning’ them to see if they deserve a reprise along with Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.
But despite the latest installment The Force Awakens recently becoming the biggest film of all time – and despite a recent populuar-but-very-far-fetched fan theory claiming Jar Jar is in fact a Sith mastermind – the New York-born actor insisted that nothing could lure him back.
‘I think I’ve done my damage. I’m good with where I stand in the Star Wars universe,’ he revealed.
‘I’d say no. I think I did what I did, I thought it was great, it was fun, but now it’s time to move on.’
Of course I say, like the movie title goes, never say never again! It only took 12 years for Sean Connery to change his mind…
Update: Here’s the video, complete with “Taken” monologue at the end:
