Last night and last Tuesday Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy, tweeted several of his old set photos. It’s an amazing collection, including gems like the picture of Harrison Ford above. He’s doing an impression of how anyone who tries to interview him feels.
