Emperor Palpatine actor Ian McDiarmid talks Star Wars Episode VII, Spin-Off Movies & More at LFCC!

One of the many highlights for fans wanting to get their geek on at last weekend’s hugely popular London Film And Comic Con was a special Q&A panel with Star Wars actor Ian McDiarmid.

It was actually Ian’s first appearance at a UK convention and he took the opportunity to answer questions from fans about his appearance as Emperor Palpatine in 1983’s Return of the Jedi, his work on the Star Wars prequel trilogy, filming with George Lucas, his theatre work, the first time he watched Return of the Jedi, his work on Angry Birds Star Wars II, finding out he was Darth Sidious, running his own theatre, and much more.

Ian also talked about whether he will appear in Star Wars Episode 7, why he really wants to return to the Star Wars universe, and why he’d like to see a spin-off movie for Emperor Palpatine. Check out the video below for this news:
