His voice role as C-3PO in the Star Wars films
As C-3PO, he has planted his 'metal' footprints in the courtyard pavement of Mann's (formerly Graumans's) Chinese Theatre.
He has played the same character (C-3PO) on six different series: Sesame Street (1969), The Muppet Show (1976), Star Wars: Droïdes - Les Aventures de R2D2 & C3PO (1985), Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003), Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) and Star Wars Rebels (2014).
In addition to playing C-3PO in all six Star Wars films, he played the part in the NPR radio dramatizations of "Star Wars" (1981), "The Empire Strikes Back" (1983), and "Return of the Jedi" (1996).
Mel Blanc was the one who ultimately suggested Daniels for the voice of C-3PO.
Is the first actor to appear in both a Star Wars film and a Lord of the Rings adaptation, by having played C-3PO in Star Wars, and voicing Legolas in Ralph Bakshi's The Lord of the Rings. Other crossover actors include Paul Brooke (the Rancor keeper, who also voiced Grima Wormtongue in the BBC radio adaptation), Christopher Lee (who played Count Dooku and Saruman), Marton Csokas (who played Celeborn and was the original voice of Poggle the Lesser), Kiran Shah (who played an Ewok, and was the scale double for Elijah Wood and Ian Holm), and Bruce Spence (who played Tion Medon and the Mouth of Sauron).
As C-3PO, he has the first line in the first Star Wars (Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)) and the last line in the last Star Wars (Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)).
Is one of three actors, along with Mark Hamill and Billy Dee Williams, to reprise their same roles from the original Star Wars trilogy in the NPR radio dramatizations of the trilogy. However, Daniels is the only one to appear in all three NPR serials; Hamill and Williams were unavailable to reprise in "Return of the Jedi" (1996).
Ironically enough, Anthony Daniels was never a science fiction fan. The only science fiction movie he ever saw in a theatre was 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). He was so disatisfied with the movie that he walked out after only ten minutes and demanded his money back!
He and Kenny Baker are the only actors to have a role in all six Star Wars movies.
He was the guest of honour at the Sci-Fi Congress "Shadowcon 4" in Oslo, Norway, August 1999.
The first film spoke to everyone on the planet. It still works as a funny, bright movie. It still has legs. [on "Star Wars"]
George's devotion to digital effects over-balanced the films. Too many digital funky characters become a little bit wearing. The storytelling always gets subsumed. [on "Star Wars"]
When I saw the painting by the design artist, the eyes of the character looked deep into my soul. He was a very forlorn figure with an abandoned air. He really did look into my soul. We made this tremendous contact. [on the first time he saw the sketch of C-3PO]
