My picture really does not do her justice at all. Bonnie Piesse played young Aunt Beru in the Star Wars prequels and she did so in such a manner that there is not a single “whiny anti-prequelish fan-boy” thing to be said about her.
I got to meet her at Wizard World’s Big Apple Comic Con and was instantly impressed with her sincere warmth and appreciation for Star Wars Fans. Over the past few years I’ve had the good fortune to meet many Star Wars actors and my experience has been that each was even nicer than the last. Such was the case with Bonnie. If you get the chance to spend a few minutes with her – take it. Embedded below is a clip I found on You Tube of her performing a song from her album, The Deep End. You can find out more about her and her music at her website.
