Remembering the late Alan Harris today on the anniversary of his passing in 2020

For a costume fitting in 1978, he wore the all-white prototype #BobaFett costume, but also played Bossk and a Bespin Security Guard on screen in "The Empire Strikes Back" – one of the ones pushing Han Solo in carbonite down the hallway

Before the cameras rolled on #BobaFett actor Jeremy Bulloch in "Return of the Jedi" (shown top center in a candid moment circa 1982), at least three other stand-ins were on set in his place: Quentin Pierre, Roy Beck, and Jack Dearlove

As noted on various call sheets for the original film, well documented when they go up for auction by Prop Store, these actors were stand-ins for several characters and even on screen, like Quentin was one of the Bespin guards escorting Solo in Carbonite for Fett in "Empire"

It's unknown if any of them suited up for camera or lighting tests, but nice to appreciate their role in production history

"When I think of #JeremyBulloch as #BobaFett, I am often reminded of Kyuzo in Kurosawa's masterful The Seven Samurai. One particular scene brings to mind the guidance that Jeremy gave to me, when I covered for him to play the 'he's-no-good-to-me-dead' scene in The Empire Strikes Back."
