Star Wars' Greedo Speaks About Infamous Han Solo Shootout
Paul Blake, who played Greedo in Star Wars, recently appeared in a documentary titled Elstree 1976, and commented about the infamous scene between Greedo and Han Solo.
In the Special Edition re-release of the first film, the plays out with Greedo firing the first shot at Han Solo. This different from Solo firing the first shot in the original.
"It said it all in the original script, we played the scene in English and at the end of the scene, it reads, 'Han shoots the alien.' It's all it says and that's what happened," said Blake.
He went on to joke about how Greedo's shooting ability looked "inept", saying "He's a worse shot than a stormtrooper!"
