DAVE FILONI ON MARK HAMILL AS THE VOICE ACTOR FOR DARTH BANE:
“I didn’t want to waste [Mark Hamill as a voice actor on The Clone Wars]. He talked to me a couple times, he even came to when we were voice recording one day–nothing to do with him! He just came into the room and he’s like, ‘When am I gonna be in this Star Wars show?’
“And I told him, ‘I want to use you, absolutely, but I want to have a role for you. That I think is worthy of you and something you’d be interested in. I don’t want to just bring you in [to bring you in].’ And when I had this opportunity, I thought what a great, bizarre reflection, to have Mark play the ultimate side of good and light, and then the father of old and ancient evil.
“He was super excited about that opportunity and Mark does evil characters so well! And I actually had him record it two different ways, he used two different voices and then I had Matt Wood and Dave Acord them layered on top of one another, so there’s one type of voice that’s underneath the other type of voice that’s over top, so it’s always fluctuating and changing.”
