Some of these I hadn't read before... Other info: Harrison Ford said that Guinness helped him find an apartment to stay at when he arrived in England to film the first Star Wars film. George Lucas said Guinness was very patient and helpful to him during the filming of the first Star Wars, even to the point of getting the other actors to work more seriously. Reportedly answered one "Star Wars" fan's boast that he'd seen the first movie over a hundred times, with a nod and the words "Promise me you'll never watch it again." The boy was stunned, but his mother thanked Guinness. Though he often spoke critically of Star Wars, the three leads, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher, have always spoken very fondly of him, praising him as being a very professional actor who was always respectful to the people he worked with. Ewan McGregor was not the only actor in the Star Wars prequels to study his performances. The voice for the character Watto was modeled after Guinness's performance as Fagin in Oliver Twist. Despite popular belief he NEVER uttered the line 'May the force be with you' in ANY of the Star Wars films (the closest he came was 'the force will be with you'). Guinness claimed to throw away all Star Wars related fan mail without even opening it.
