    Mr. Higgins has a lengthy career in British television and film. He has appeared in a variety of movies, mini-series and shows, including Blake's 7, Poirot, and The Bill. To Star Wars fans, he's known as the "other" Wedge. :p During the Rebel briefing in A New Hope, Luke comments about bulls-eyeing Womp Rats back on Tatooine to the pilot sitting next to him. He calls this person Wedge. Well, Wedge he may be, but the Wedge Antilles we're most familiar with from all three original movies is played by another actor, Denis Lawson. Nonetheless, Mr. Higgins played his part in the Rebel Alliance, and rightfully contributed to the character Wedge.

    You can check out Mr. Higgins’ IMDB filmography here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0383360/

    Mr. Higgins is a relatively new signer, but is happy to sign items sent to him. Most people have received a response in less than a month, always less than two months. This is another excellent autograph opportunity from A New Hope, so don't pass it up.

    Today brought four envelopes, with my sole Star Wars success being Mr. Higgins.

    He signed and inscribed the photo I sent to him. I usually make you all go to my website, but since no one has posted his sig yet, I'll do it here.


    Thanks Bothans.

    He's never actually referred to by name in the movie. His lines in the script are simply labeled as Wedge. I personally just take this as a script error and consider him as "X-Wing Pilot". (No disrespect to Mr. Higgins).

    Received a response this weekend :) Mr. Higgins signed my trading card, indexes and print out. He also wrote a short letter apologising for the delay and explaining that a lot of his fan mail got mixed up when he moved. Awesome response.

    Took 6 months.
