First interview with Jeremy Bulloch.
Most of the letter writers who have written because of his Boba Fett characterization are between the ages of five and 25. "Quite a lot from women," he adds, "which is always nice. I replied to each letter. Several people have written to me three of four times via America and their letters get to me maybe two months later.
"A lot of letters have come from six year olds. They write in their scrawly handwriting, 'Dear Bobb Fat' or 'Bubble Fat' or whatever. 'We think you are terrific. Your friend, Brad Hacko.' So I write back: 'Dear Brad, Thanks very much. I will send you a photograph soon. May the dark side of the Force be with you. Boba Fett.' Just underneath I write my real name, Jeremy Bulloch."
"If I do Revenge of the Jedi, I shall play him exactly as before -- stealthily and slow. Each turn of the head is slow. He's always aware of the people around him. And he'll have all that gear. He carries this gun. He has a jet pack, a rocket launch. There's so much on his arms -- all sorts of buttons he can press for laser rockets and things like that. It's rather like wearing armor from the Middle Ages with sophisticated science-fiction gear. Goodness knows how we'll run from anything with all that gear."
During the filming of the carbon freezing chamber scene, Bulloch was greatly concerned about his footing. "I was walking down behind Han Solo, and I thought: "If I slip now, I've had it. I'm going to destroy everything. Because I couldn't see where I was going. I had these funny boots with two spikes in my toes and every now and then as I would touch my foot down one would get caught and crossed. I thought I would be going head over ass."
