Elaine Baker (born December 23, 1952) is the ex-wife of make-up designer Rick Baker. During the filming of the second Star Wars film, Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, Baker was filmed for test shots of Emperor Palpatine. However, Marjorie Eaton would be the one to appear in the final film.[1]

Notes and referencesEdit

  1. Though Baker is credited in The Making of The Empire Strikes Back as being the actress who appears in the final film, a twitter post (screenshot) by Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo suggests the information in the book is incorrect, making Marjorie Eaton (the actress credited with doing the test shots) the one who appears in the film.
