This is not Anthony Lang[]

Why are my edits to this page continually reverted? Anthony Lang is not the actor who played BoShek, but instead the one who played Sim Aloo. Lang looks completely different to the BoShek guy. Here is the documentation for his appearances on Doctor Who, where you will find his name listed both times:

These are numerous screenshots of Lang in various roles, including his second appearance in Doctor Who: http://www.aveleyman.com/ActorCredit.aspx?ActorID=25327

Now this is a screenshot I took myself, based upon the documentation for the episode, of his first appearance on Doctor Who:


There are very few extras in this episode, and none of them look anything like the actor who played BoShek. One of them, however, looks exactly like Sim Aloo.

I agree with this, the actor who played BoShek remains unknown; people assume Lang played the role simply because he was signed on to do the Cantina scene (despite looking NOTHING like the man who played BoShek). Lang's only appearance during A New Hope is as a Rebel during the briefing. And as it's been said before, his most notable appearance appearance was as Sim Aloo during Return of the Jedi (where his face is extremely recognizable). It's a shame that he's passed away and cannot defend against the misrepresentation of his portrayals. -SlashMan (talk) 22:05, October 5, 2013 (UTC)
