"They Were in Star Wars?" 15 Actors You Probably Didn’t Know Were in Star Wars Movies

Mark Hamill. Carrie Fisher. Harrison Ford. Daisy Ridley. John Boyega. We all know them from Star Wars movies. Sure, all of them acted before Star Wars but it was Star Wars that made them stars. There are plenty of actors, however, who appeared in Star Wars movies but aren’t remembered for it. Some played uncredited extras, like Stormtroopers and droids and handmaidens. Others got famous long after their appearance, even decades later. In any case, it’s about time we look back at our favorite forgotten Star Wars appearances and also some of our favorite cameos from already-famous actors!

Poké Wars: Star Wars-inspired Pokémon

Star Wars-inspired PokemonThis goes without saying, but Star Wars is the biggest movie franchise of all time. Since its debut in 1977, no movie has dominated movie theaters like whichever Star Wars film was playing at the time. (Yes, even the prequels.) Since its triumphant return as a Disney property in 2015, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have combined to bring in more than $3 billion from the worldwide box office. Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the latest entry in the saga, will definitely be adding to that total. And it's not only the movies: Star Wars merchandise is just as important. The day that new Star Wars toys are released is now a holiday of sorts, known as Force Friday. If there's a product that can have the Star Wars logo or characters on it, you can bet that it exists.

Doctor Who is one of the great success stories in science-fiction television.

Since Season 10 ended in July, we've been waiting for this year’s Christmas Special (“Twice Upon a Time”), which marks the regeneration of the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) into the Thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker).
