Jeremy Bulloch (born February 16, 1945) is a British actor best known for playing Boba Fett in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. He is producer Robert Watts's half-brother.

BiographyEdit

Although Bulloch wore the Boba Fett costume, the actual voice of the character (prior to being replaced with Temuera Morrison's in the 2004 DVD) was Jason Wingreen. According to what Bulloch later declared in an interview, the famous line from The Empire Strikes Back]] in which Boba Fett growls, watching a pair of Stormtroopers loading Han Solo on the Slave I, gave him a few problems: although Fett says "Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold" on-screen, Bulloch recalls actually saying "Put Captain cargo in the Solo hold" during that take.[1] Bulloch also played the role of Lieutenant Sheckil after the original actor was unable to perform. He later had a cameo in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith as Captain Jeremoch Colton piloting the Sundered Heart.

Bulloch joined David Prowse, Michael Sheard and Orli Shoshan in the UK fanfilms Order of the Sith: Vengeance, and its sequel Downfall. Jeremy played the father and commanding officer of the main character, Fuser Marucs. The films were made in support of Save the Children. He was kind enough to made a cameo as himself (a convention attendee) in the Paducah Imperials FanForce feature length fan film Star Wars Fanboy, ironically muttering the words of Han Solo from Return of the Jedi, "Boba Fett, where? "

He appeared twice in Doctor Who in the stories The Space Museum (1965) and The Time Warrior (1974). He was featured in the Beginning the End documentary about the making of the Time Warrior story.[2]
