Anthony Daniels has played the golden humanoid robot C-3PO in the Star Wars films for more than 40 years. He's just released a new memoir, titled I Am C-3PO - The Inside Story, about his history with the part. Daniels sat down with q's Tom Power to reflect on his time as C-3PO and what it's like being in that suit on shoots. Plus, he comes clean about not really being a sci-fi fan before he got the part.

You can catch Daniels in the film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which hits theatres next month. I Am C-3PO - The Inside Story is out now.
