Jango Fest: Temuera Morrison Set to Appear at Celebration Europe

Temuera Morrison, the actor who portrayed both the father of the clone army -- infamous bounty hunter Jango Fett, one of the key figures of the prequel trilogy -- and the entire clone army itself, is slated to appear at Celebration Europe next month in Essen, Germany. Fans can meet Morrison, along with many other Star Wars actors and creators, in Celebration Autograph Hall.

Morrison came to the attention of American audiences playing Jake, an abusive husband and father, in Once Were Warriors, for which he was awarded the New Zealand Film Award (NZFA) for Best Performance in a Dramatic Role. He received his second NZFA for Best Actor for reprising the role in What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?. Temuera most recently appeared in two New Zealand independent films: Fresh Meat, and Mt. Zion, and has numerous movie and television credits on his resume.
