Dark Lord of the Typos
Mr. Revill has had a highly successful career on stage and film. Over the years he has been nominated many times for awards for his delightfully comical stage performances. He has also made many television appearances and voice-overs from the 1980s through today. He has a role in the recent Crime and Punishment, and had appeared in Dracula: Dead and Loving It, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, and The Diary of Anne Frank.
He has also appeared in recent popular shows including Babylon 5, Star Trek:TNG (playing Sir Guy of Gisborn in Qpid), Lois and Clark: The Adventures of Superman, and has lent his voice talents to Return to Neverland and Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas.
Mr. Revill is also well known for his many cartoon voice talents. He voiced Alfred in a handful of Batman: TAS episodes, and was also the voice of Kickback in Transformers. He lent his talents to the X-Wing vs. TE Fighter computer game, and also voiced General Dodonna in the first X-Wing game.
In the Star Wars universe, however, Mr. Revill is best known as being the first to voice Emperor Palpatine in The Empire Strikes Back. Although his lines have been replaced in the new DVDs, most fan still remember his voice when they think of those scenes. It should be noted that the original hologram of the Emperor was not his likeness, only his voice.

Mr. Reville has an interview in Star Wars Insider magazine #49, also available here:
Mr. Revill is a great signer. He has always been happy to sign for his fans. He will sign and personalize just about anything you send him. I have heard that he does not wish to sign images of the new hologram Emperor from the DVDs. Obviously, these represent neither his likeness nor voice, and most actors won’t sign anything that does not represent them out of professional integrity. That said, most people receive responses very quickly--usually in less than two weeks. Sometimes they can take a great deal longer, but I suspect those are due to postal mishaps.
