(Artist Tom Hodges gives Mary Franklin a hug -
note the MFIFC – Mary Franklin International Fan Club shirt!)
Our pals at Lightsabre UK have profiled Lucasfilm’s very own Events Manager Goddess and Editor of Bantha Tracks Mary Franklin. If you’ve ever attended Celebration, Comic-Con, E3, Celebration Europe, DragonCon, WonderCon and any other con you’ve probably seen Mary in a blur of activity. Her love of the fans is equal to her love of Bossk — and that’s saying plenty!
Here’s an excerpt from her interview:
Which of the myriad Star Wars characters do you feel the most affinity for?
Bossk. I love Bossk. Most of the bounty hunters try to be subtle and cool and aloof, but Bossk doesn’t bother with that. He just looks like he’d rather rip your throat out now than be coy. I also love the character of Han Solo. Conflicted heroes, like Solo, and Aragorn in the LOTR movies, are the ones I find most compelling.
