Actor Anthony Daniels discusses his character, C-3PO, at the premiere of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

“It’s quite a responsibility,” he said in an interview with The Times on the “Star Wars: The Forces Awakens” world premiere red carpet. “It really is an honor.”
The Britain-born actor has been in every major “Star Wars” picture and most of its associated properties: holiday specials, television spinoffs, video games.
