Terence Stamp Comes Clean About His Star Wars: Episode I Experience

Posted by monique On January - 31 - 2013 0 Comment

It’s already conventional wisdom with the movie fans and “Star Wars” crowd that the “Star Wars” prequels are quite terrible. It’s also become even more ingrained in society thanks to Red Letter Media’s severe takedown of the prequels, expertly proving the theory that George Lucas cared more about new technology and green screens than he did the actual film. Now, Terence Stamp delivers the final blow.

According to CinemaBlend, Stamp, who played Chancellor Valorum in “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace” had not-so-nice things to say about Lucas’ filming process.

In his interview with Empire Magazine, Stamp told the magazine that he originally signed on to work with Natalie Portman after watching her in Luc Besson’s “The Professional” and to appease his agent. But, even though he did get to meet Portman during the film, he never got the acting chance he wanted.

“I did meet her and she was absolutely enchanting,” he said. “But on the day I was supposed to do my scene with her, for which I traveled halfway around the world [Australia], I said, ‘Where’s Natalie?’ And George says, ‘That’s Natalie,’ and points to a bit of paper on the wall. It was just boring.”

What do you think about Stamp’s statements? Give your opinions below.
