C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels wasn't thrilled when he first heard that the beloved protocol droid would have a red arm in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Daniels was on hand at the Empire Awards last night, where Star Wars picked up five awards, and he spoke with The List about his interaction with director JJ Abrams regarding the red arm.
Daniels said, "I will tell you that J.J and I used to argue a lot because I wasn't sure about the red arm as a piece of prosthetics and neither was C-3PO, so I wanted to do other things but J.J is the boss man so he got a red arm.
Daniels went on to say that he now jokes with Abrams about the red arm frequently, saying, "We used to tease each other a lot. He sends me cards now with drawings of the red arm."
