Greedo is a fictional character from the Star Wars universe. He is portrayed by Paul Blake in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

Appearances[edit]

Star Wars (1977)[edit]

Greedo appears in Star Wars as a Rodian bounty hunter working for Jabba the Hutt. Jabba hires him to capture Han Solo, who lost the Hutt's cargo during an illegal smuggling assignment. Greedo approaches Han in the cantina at Mos Eisley Spaceport on Tatooine and tries to take him in at gunpoint, but Han shoots him dead with a concealed blaster.

A New Hope: Special Edition (1997)[edit]

Greedo appears in A New Hope as a Rodian bounty hunter working for Jabba the Hutt. Jabba hires him to capture Han Solo, who lost the Hutt's cargo during an illegal smuggling assignment. Greedo approaches Han in the cantina at Mos Eisley Spaceport on Tatooine and tries to take him in at gunpoint, but Han refuses and then Greedo shoots at Han, missing him, while Han shoots him dead with a concealed blaster.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars[edit]

Greedo also appears in the 2010 Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Sphere of Influence". In this series, set 20 years before A New Hope, Greedo is hired by the Trade Federation to kidnap Baron Papanoida's daughters, Che Amanwe and Chi Eekway. He is ultimately foiled by Ahsoka Tano, however.

Portrayal[edit]

Paul Blake played Greedo in the shots that feature both Greedo and Han Solo in the same frame. For Greedo's close-ups, a new articulated head was built for pickups at the end of the shoot, and Maria De Aragon was enlisted to play Greedo. His voice was provided by linguist Larry Ward. In the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series, Greedo was voiced by Tom Kenny.
