Darth Sidious, of course perfectly embodied by Ian McDiarmid in the feature films was for us played by Marcus Sinclair. A singular individual its hard to imagine anybody who embodied more perfectly all that Sidious was. His impression of him was incredible. Sinclair appeared in front of a review board of Lucasarts representatives to confirm that he could play the part and it was in no way a sure thing. There was deep concern from Lucasarts that no recognisable characters be represented live to an audience out of fear that it would undermine the event. The only exceptions were, of course Vader and the Storm Troopers. Sinclair’s performance was certainly impressive enough to get them on board and we had our evil emperor. The only real problem was that he rarely dropped out of character. Nefarious, calculating and naughty to the last, Sinclair became a genuine thorn in the side of any actor dressed as a Jedi. Utilising the mighty Vader (Daniel Vivien) throughout his reign of terror, all the actors could do when faced with him was fall before him. I took a pummelling on day one frankly. Occassionally, with the aid of force pushes from the assembled public he would be defeated but even then he rarely gave up. Marcus Sinclair, we salute you, you really are an evil little sith!! 😉
Jedi Master Jordo Pash (Tom Jordan) is a shining light in the Jedi Order. A capable and dependable warrior, sound tactician, instinctive control over his Jedi Powers, an adept pilot and skilled with a lightsabre. He is the all round Jedi. When presented with the decimation of the Jedi Order he has little or no choice. With the council in pieces and Jedi scattered throughout the galaxy, the panicked and fleeing Knights turn to him. Jordo Pash does all he can to step forwards and take on the threats that pervade him and his Jedi brothers and sisters. In the end all he can do is cause as much trouble as possible in order to draw Vader and the Clawing Legion in for a final showdown. Occasionally in cahoots with his old friend Govija Kaoli, he advises him away from siding with the remaining separatists.
