Austin St John

Austin St. John's first major role in acting was in 1993, when he starred as Jason Lee Scott, the original Red Power Ranger, in Saban Entertainment's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. At the age of 17, when the series premiered on the Fox Network, he was the youngest member of the original cast, but was also the most experienced at martial arts, which was integrated into his character on the show. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was an instant success and quickly became one of the highest-rated children's television programs ever.
While being 7’4” tall didn't make Peter the tallest man in England or win him a Big Foot Contest, it did get him a job offer to appear in Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger as the Minoton. The next year, it got him an interview with George Lucas to play the quirky and lovable side kick of Han Solo, Chewbacca the Wookiee. He was later called back twice to reprise his role for Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. He reprised the role of Chewbacca again for the prequels appearing in Revenge of the Sith to whisk Yoda to safety and provide continuity for the six episode movies of Star Wars.
Peter was brought in to consult with Lucasfilm artists as they prepared to bring Chewbacca into The Clone Wars Cartoon Series. Mayhew finished his consulting with a trip to Skywalker Sound where he was recorded for the first time in 30 years making the grunts and roars to become "The Voice of Chewbacca." Peter does other acting occasionally but enjoys spending time in fandom at comic and science fiction events around the world. He is considered fan friendly and a goodwill ambassador to the extended family of fans, geeks, nerds, gamers, hobbyist collectors and costumers everywhere.
