Everyone is aware of the actors who took on the iconic roles of Star Wars. Most are even aware of the ones who had smaller parts. Here’s a list of some actors who appeared in the Star Wars films whose roles were so small you may not have recognized them.
Star Wars has been loaded with great actors. Every trilogy in the saga is loaded with its fair share of talented actors.
The original trilogy, of course, had the big three with Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher. It also had great supporting roles from Billy Dee Williams and Sir Alec Guiness. The prequels had award-winning actors like Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson, and Natalie Portman. The sequels had a solid cast as well, with big named actors like Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, and Adam Driver taking on roles.
However, there have also been plenty of big named actors who took on much smaller parts in Star Wars. Sometimes it’s because these actors were just getting their feet wet and hadn’t caught their big breaks yet. Other times it’s a popular actor wanting to make a cameo in their favorite film franchise. Here are some big named actors who appeared in Star Wars that you may not have been aware of.
