Star Wars People Tidbits

Quite a few tidbits about Star Wars people in the news:

Keira Knightley (Sabe) is about ready to give up acting. Millions of fanboys flock to counseling for support.

Masi Oka, a former ILM-er, almost did the same thing before a gig on a little show called Heroes came along.

Natalie Portman (Padme Amidala) is apparently going in the opposite direction by playing two roles in her upcoming film Goya’s Ghosts.

Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) didn’t seem to care much. She just enjoyed having lunch with hairy creatures and robots.

And someone who might be a bit too busy to do any acting for a while is Keisha Castle-Hughes (Queen Apailana), who gave birth to a little girl on April 25th.
