Grand Moff Tarkin Wore Slippers

Posted by Joshua Shaffer on January 20, 2018 at 8:35 PM

#59. Peter Cushing, the actor who portrayed Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, has twelve-inch feet. Costuming didn’t have time to custom make the boots for his costume so they hurt his feet on the first day of shooting. On the second day, he asked George if they could shoot him from the waist up because his feet were hurting and he needed different shoes. For the rest of the filming he wore carpet slippers on his feet and he was filmed from the waist up or he was partially blocked by objects, like the large table. He had the slippers on in the scenes when he was the most menacing, like when he blew up Alderaan in front of Princess Leia.
