In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope his voice was dubbed by David Ankrum. He reprised the role, in voice-over form, in the Nintendo GameCube game Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader. Lawson's voice also provided the narration for the audio book of Heir to the Empire and Dark Force Rising in both novels, he reprised his role as Wedge Antilles as well as playing all characters.

Lawson turned down Lucas's proposal to make a cameo as Raymus Antilles in Revenge of the Sith.

Lawson was approached to return for Star Wars Episode VII, but declined, stating that it "just would have bored [him]."
