How Star Wars Changed Jerome Blake’s Life

Cnet has an interview with prequel alum Jerome Blake, who played seven different characters during the trilogy:

During scenes involving the Jedi Council, Blake played opposite Samuel L Jackson, who had lobbied hard for a role in the saga.

Blake remembers one day between takes he was sitting next to Jackson, who was reading a book. “He very calmly closes the book, takes his reading spectacles off, puts them on top of the book — and then drops his head into his hands. I said, ‘Sam, are you not feeling well?'”

“He said, ‘Yeah, yeah. I’m OK — I just can’t get used to the idea that I’m working with Yoda.’ He’d just been on ‘Jackie Brown‘ working with De Niro and Tarantino and he was more excited about Yoda!”
