'Star Wars' actor releases vintage on-set photos
The Wookiee most definitely wins this round.
Actor Peter Mayhew, 69, who portrayed the large, hairy Wookiee Chewbacca in the "Star Wars" franchise, took to his Twitter account Thursday night -- appropriately called @TheWookieeRoars -- to release dozens of vintage photos taken on the "Star Wars" set.
While some of the photos depict him, a large number focus on his co-stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill and director George Lucas.
Perhaps the most surprising gems feature the elephants that were transformed into the large, domesticated banthas and a singular photo of American actress Koo Stark "who played Camie in "Episode VI"," Mayhew explained in a tweet. "Her scenes didn't make it to the final film."
