He is a regular contributor to Lucasfilm's Star Wars.com and the U.K.'s Jedi News.

Beyond the Galaxy, fans know John from roles in epic films like A Bridge Too Far, Superman II and Flash Gordon and in the BBC television series Oppenheimer. A veteran performer, he appeared on London's West End stage and New York's Off-Off Broadway as an actor and musician. When not acting, singing or playing guitar, he was a lighting and sound technician affiliated with London's White Light Electrics working on such classic productions as The Rocky Horror Show, the Royal Shakespeare Company's Nicholas Nickleby and thoughtprovoking plays by celebrated playwright David Hare.

A writer and published author, John's Backstory In Blue: Ellington At Newport '56 is a behind the-scenes look at a legendary moment in American cultural history when a performance of the great Duke Ellington Orchestra almost caused a riot at the third Newport Jazz Festival. Currently, he is in discussions with a number of film producers to package and develop his screenplay adaptation of Backstory In Blue. John's stageplays have been produced in New York and Washington, notably his award-winning Hubris.

Autograph and selfie pricing determined by guest and subject to change. Current price list is: $40 for autograph, $40 for selfie and $60 combo autograph & selfie. Guests only accept cash, but an ATM is on site.

David Ankrum 40 years after voicing Wedge in Star Wars, David was asked to reprise his role in Rogue One by Matthew Wood and Lucasfilm. You can't miss him as the PA announcer on Yavin - Redirecting the Rebel Squadron into the crucial battle on Scarif. Ankrum was originally cast by Fred Roos and George Lucas to voice Wedge Antilles (Red 2) in Star Wars: A New Hope. David dubbed the voice of Scottish Actor Denis Lawson who played the physical role in the film.

David grew up in a family of actors. His mother, Joan Ankrum (stage name Joan Wheeler) was under contract to Warner Bros. in the 1930's where she did several films. She also performed on Broadway with Van Heflin. His Father, Morris Ankrum, was a character actor who played many diverse roles in many films. He seemed to be in every Science Fiction Film with the word "Mars" in the title. "Flight To Mars" "Invaders From Mars" where he played Colonel Fielding, "Red Planet Mars". He also protected the Earth from giant locusts in "Beginning Of The End". Got sapped by Martians in "Earth vs. The Flying Saucers". David also grew up across the street from Dennis Muren. They made films in Dennis's garage when they were childhood friends. Dennis went on to work on Star Wars where he brought his special effects genius to light.

Some of David's other acting highlights were playing Adam Stephens opposite Lisa Hartman in the series "Tabitha", starring with Melanie Griffith in a sold TV series that never aired, "Coast To Coast" for NBC. Working with director Lasse Hallstrom as the lead in a TV Pilot "The Big Five" for NBC... Oh and not to forget throwing John Boy off a bridge on John Boy's first day of college in "The Waltons".
