Peter Diamond was the stunt coordinator on Episodes IV[2] and V,[3] and assisted with stunts on Episode VI. He created the lightsaber combat styles of Djem So and Soresu for Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

He also played A'Koba, Garouf Lafoe, a stormtrooper, a Death Star Trooper named Corporal Prescott in the Legends continuity, a snowtrooper, a scout trooper, a Weequay skiff master, and a rebel commando in a subsequently deleted scene.

Additionally, he wore a black suit covered with lightbulbs inside Jabba's Palace that was to be transformed into a creature in post production, however the idea was scrapped and never fully realized. [4]

He was among the people interviewed for the documentary Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy, which was released six months after his death.
