Interview with Simon Pegg about The Force Awakens

Interview with Simon Pegg about The Force Awakens has an interview of British actor Simon Pegg (who played Mr. Scott from Star Trek, Benji Dunn from Mission: Impossible, and other characters). Pegg discusses how he got the role of a new alien character plus his experience during the shooting of The Force Awakens. Pegg says:

“I mean, seeing it [Star Wars] for the first time [as a kid] and coming out and being so utterly changed by it, it was an incredible thing to be part of it,” Pegg told us. “I was down there days when I wasn’t working just to hang out and see everybody. Meeting the likes of Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill, and Harrison Ford — they were my heroes growing up. They still are. It was extraordinary, and I’m sure they find it hilariously funny. I was holding Carrie Fisher, like, ‘I love you!’ And I could see it, looking into her eyes, I could see the same eyes that I’d seen as a kid. It was literally a dream come true. They’re all awesome. They’re great people.”

Huffington Post also has an interview with Pegg, where he reveals the behind the scenes footage of The Force Awakens (shown at the San Diego Comic-Con) was actually screened for the cast at the end of shooting. See this video here.
