EB VIP #09 – Brian Herring

Today we add our ninth guest to our guest list. We are thrilled to welcome back an old acquaintance: Brian Herring!

In 2015 we got to know the cool new droid BB-8, who instantly became a fan favorite. 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 and The Last Jedi, but also for the upcoming film The Rise of Skywalker.

Besides that Brian also worked on Rogue One, in which he among other things can be seen as the droid SE-2 and on Solo – A Star Wars Story.

Brian Herring will be answering questions of visitors and taking part in a signing session at Echo Base Con. For more information about our ninth guest, please check his Guest page.

Echo Base Charity Con 2019 will take place on Saturday, December 21 in Kinepolis Jaarbeurs, Utrecht, the Netherlands. Buy your tickets here today!
