C-3PO tweets as ‘Star Wars in Concert’ begins U.S. tour

o2__ad_head_Anthony Daniels, who was the voice of C-3PO in all six Star Wars films and is now traveling the country with “Star Wars in Concert,” has added Twitter to his famed 6 million forms of communication. The British actor, who narrates the musical tribute to the saga at 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, uses the handle ADaniels3PO.

His first words to online followers: “Today my first tweet and tonight my first performance with Star Wars In Concert in the U.S.!”

He then went on to tweet during dress rehearsal, intermission and immediately after his Thursday’s performance at Anaheim’s Honda Center, the start of a whirlwind U.S. tour that doesn’t let up until December.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Daniels last month when he stopped in the Valley to promote the event and to check out Jobing.com Arena’s facilities. He’s very generous with his time — a 25-minute interview with four reporters turned into 45 minutes before we knew it, and I got the impression he could have gone on — and he has truly come to appreciate what his character means to generations of fans worldwide.

You can read my full interview with Anthony Daniels here and, in part, in Friday’s Take2 section of the Tribune.
