30 Famous actors you never knew were in Star Wars.

Over the past 40 years, Star Wars has delighted us with a galaxy far, far away. One filled with planets, people, Ewoks and hundreds of awe-inspiring creatures. And that requires a lot of actors.

With such a famous franchise, it’s no wonder that famous actors of all generations have appeared in the Star Wars films. Some may be prominent enough that you notice them, even with their costumes and makeup. But others have cameos that are so brief you probably missed them, or appeared in Star Wars before they became famous.

As they say in Hollywood: there are no small parts, only small actors. Here are the people you probably never knew were in the Star Wars movies.
