EB VIP #6 – BB-6 at your service!

Brian Herring (BB-8) will be at Echo Base Charity Con – A Star Wars Event! In 2015 we got to know the cool new droid BB-8, who instantly became a fan favorite. It led to the enormous success of the remote controlled version by Sphero even before the movie The Force Awakens was released in cinemas.

BB-8 was realised by CGI for a number of scenes, but in most cases BB-8 was an “actual” robot who was brought to life by actor and puppeteer Brian Herring. He didn’t just fulfil this task for The Force Awakens but also for the upcoming film The Last Jedi. Besides that Brian also worked on Rogue One, in which he amongst other things can be seen as the droid SE-2.
