Here's who C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels played in Solo

Ever since he first played the droid Han Solo not-so-affectionately calls “Goldenrod” in the original 1977 movie, Anthony Daniels has appeared in every subsequent Star Wars films.

C-3PO isn’t featured in Solo: A Star Wars Story, but Lucasfilm still managed to give Daniels a cameo.

It’s not exactly a plot spoiler, but just to be on the safe side, let’s talk about who he plays on the next page.

Call him Tak, and keep your eyes sharp — Anthony Daniels’ high-strung escaped slave comes and goes quickly during the heist in the Kessel mine.

When Sagwa, the skinny Wookiee, beckons Chewbacca to flee with him by pressing their foreheads together, Tak is the human in the brown hat and poncho who is calling, “Sagwaaaa! This way!”

In Solo: The Official Guide, by Lucasfilm story group member Pablo Hidalgo, there’s a little more background about Daniels’ character, although it sounds like Sagwa ran off with the worse scoundrel:

“Believed to have once been a con artist robbing the elderly on Coruscant, Tak crossed a line by attempting to do the same with the Princess of Kessel. Now, Tak uses his swindles and schemes to try to get easier work shifts.”

Maybe someday we’ll hear more about the adventures of Tak and Sagwa, or maybe this hustler is just a minor player in the grand scheme of the galaxy.

For more Solo spoiler talk, let’s explore the return of that cloaked figure revealed at the end… and how he got there.
