Jeremy Bulloch (born 16th February 1945) appeared as Tor in The Space Museum and in The Time Warrior as Hal the Archer. He is best known, though, for his role in the Star Wars films portraying (but not voicing) bounty hunter Boba Fett.

During the production of The Time Warrior, Bulloch was briefly considered for a role as a companion alongside Sarah Jane Smith. Given the three-month gap between production of The Time Warrior and Invasion of the Dinosaurs, there was, in fact, time to change the scripts to accommodate this hypothetical companion. The idea was tentatively floated to Bulloch by Barry Letts, but it was not vigorously pursued by the production team.

"Now that I'm a pez and a LEGO I don't really want for any more..."
―Jeremy Bulloch

Jeremy Bulloch (born February 16, 1945) is producer Robert Watts's half-brother. Bulloch played Boba Fett for most of The Empire Strikes Back and all of Return of the Jedi. The actual voice of Boba Fett, before being replaced with Temuera Morrison's in the Special Edition DVD, was Jason Wingreen.

He also played the role of Lieutenant Sheckil, an Imperial officer seen escorting Princess Leia Organa, Chewbacca, and Lando Calrissian through the corridors of Cloud City just after Luke Skywalker's arrival for his showdown with Darth Vader.

Later Bulloch returned for a cameo as Captain Colton piloting the Tantive IV in Revenge of the Sith.

He was kind enough to make a cameo as himself, a convention attendee, in the Paducah Imperials FanForce feature length fan film Star Wars Fanboy, ironically muttering the words of Han Solo from Return of the Jedi, "Boba Fett, where?"

Bulloch is also best known to sci-fi fans for appearing twice in Doctor Who in the stories The Space Museum (1965) and The Time Warrior (1974). He was also featured in the documentry Begining the End about the making of the story The Time Warrior which was part of The Time Warrior DVD.

Behind the scenes

When Jeremy Bulloch's son saw The Empire Strikes Back, his only comment was "Daddy, why were you wearing a bucket on your head?" Hence the web documentary on Jango Fett was called "Bucket Head."

The reason why Jeremy Bulloch played the Imperial was due to the original actor being unable to perform for the minor role.

According to what Jeremy Bulloch declared in an interview, the famous line (from The Empire Strikes Back) Boba Fett growls, watching a pair of Stormtroopers loading Han Solo on the Slave I, gave him a few problems: although Fett says "Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold" on-screen, Bulloch recalls actually saying "Put Captain cargo in the Solo hold" during that take.
