For other uses, see Jay (disambiguation).

"I quite like the character, because he's this guardian that has Padmé's ear, and her counsel, and he can say things and decree things that not too many people can get away with as far as her security is involved. Once you get the costume on, it's a regal feeling, because the costume is so restrictive, you're forced to pull yourself up and forced to hold yourself with the shoulders back."
―Jay Laga'aia[2]

Jay Laga'aia (born September 10, 1963[1]) played Captain Typho in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.


Because of Typho's eye patch, Jay Laga'aia often had difficulty hitting his marks on Attack of the Clones set due to poor depth perception.[2]

Laga'aia was the Celebrity Host for the Sagamore Ballroom stage at Celebration III in 2005,[3] and for the Concourse Ballroom stage at Celebration IV in 2007.[4]
