The 45-year-old actor says he was visited by Anthony on the set of the film, where he discovered that Alan would be filming the role using motion capture rather than be put in the suit like he was years ago.
“Anthony Daniels went on about the suit that he had to wear and that ‘originally they put screws in my head and they closed it and he had to be on this thing,” Alan said during an appearance on Conan. “He said, ‘Wait a minute, are you wearing an actual robot costume, or are they doing it in motion capture?’”
“And then I saw him at the premiere, I said hello again, and I said, ‘I’m going to ask you for notes when this is over, if you can please tell me how I did.’ And I saw him at the party afterwards and he came up and said, ‘f— you.’ And that’s one of the best compliments I’ve got!” Alan added.
