In her youth, she spent years training with the London Contemporary Dance Company and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York, and she appeared in the original London cast of Andrew Lloyd Weber's musical Cats.

In 1982, Taylor auditioned with director Richard Marquand for a dancing role. The actress, who was only 22 at the time, was asked to come in her swimsuit. Despite her fear of auditioning for a sleazy erotic movie, she showed up for the audition. It was not until after she won the role of Oola, Jabba the Hutt's Twi'lek slave dancer, that Taylor found out she had auditioned for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

In 1997, when Star Wars creator George Lucas envisioned a revamped Special Edition of the Star Wars trilogy, Taylor was asked to reprise the part. All-new scenes were filmed for the Special Edition, most notably a handle of shots featuring Oola cowering in fear before her Hutt master and the ferocious rancor. The filmmakers were initially concerned with her possible changes in appearance since 1982, and they were afraid the actress wouldn't fit anymore in the original costume. Taylor, however, had remarkably retained her figure.

Jim will be appearing at LCTC due to his wrestling notoriety, but as a lifelong collector of comics, entertainment, pro wrestling and pop culture items, he will be as excited to be there as the fans in attendance, and will probably have a few rare comic-related items amongst the wrestling memorabilia at his booth for some wheeling and dealing to acquire things he needs or clear space in his collections for more!

Corey Williams

ROTJ - Klaatu

Corey was actually his Dad’s stand-in on Return of the Jedi and it was during his time on set that he was offered the role of KLAATU. But how cool is it that Billy Dee’s son was his actual stand-in!?

Spending a few weeks on set and having your Dad respected by the crew was a sure fire way for Corey to be asked to don the costume of this odd green creature. In the end his scenes were very short BUT he left the set of RETURN OF THE JEDI with an amazing story to tell and also the awesome honor of becoming an action figure!

Corey has worked on a few other films, but acting was not his passion. Corey is now a fitness and lifestyle coach who has trained famous people and everyday people like you and me.
