He is the Star Wars constant: Anthony Daniels is the only actor to appear in all six Star Wars films, and next year he will return in a hugely anticipated seventh. As the voice and body of the faithful and fearful C-3PO, the 68-year-old has embodied this character - a role he initially didn't even want - across TV shows, radio plays, concert tours, and theme park rides.

Our Man In Havana

WHO: Alec Guinness, the versatile English actor who would have turned 100 earlier this year if he were still alive today, stars in this film directed by Carol Reed.
