    Question What is the story on Oliver Ford Davies?

    Just having seen AOTC for the sixth time... I noticed Oliver Ford Davies shaking during his scene. Was he ill, stricken with old age or did he do this to portray Sio Bibble's character having aged? Just curious.

    Well that is only his head, and not his body. They filmed somebody else on location in Spain, and in London they filmed Davies' head and stuck it onto the body. So if the body is shaking it is probably not Oliver Davies but the actor portraying his body .

    WHOA that's frickin creepy!
    Didn't they also do the headswappin' thing on Valorum in TPM, the guy who played Bossk did his body but Terence did his head?

    Pendo, I'm pretty sure that that is all him. They showed on one of the making of specials that they filmed an empty chair and then added Oliver Ford Davies in afterwards. I think he may have been ill, that's why he couldn't make the trip for filming on location.

    That's right, they did film an empty chair, and filmed Oliver at the London re-shoots.

    Does anyone kow if he's still ill or is he getting better? I hope he doesn't die, especially before finishing Episode III .

    Well, he was well enough for the London re-shoots so hopefully he's gotten over whatever was wrong with him. He is getting up there in years though, so we have to consider it a possibility. Actually I can't even find his age, his IMDB.com file is lacking any personal history entries.
