Hand Print signed: "Peter Mayhew", 7½x10. Tracing of his left hand, in black ink. English-born Peter Mayhew (1944-2019) became a US citizen in 2005, the same year of his fourth movie appearance as Chewbacca the Wookie in the Star Wars films. (He was in the original "middle trilogy," beginning in 1975, and also in what is now called Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Standing 7'3" tall, Mayhew was a natural for the part; his first film role has been as a minotaur in Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. Mayhew doesn't speak the Wookie's parts; no human could. The voice is a combination of animal growls. However, he studied zoo animals carefully to get a sense of how a Wookie might move. Mayhew remains very active in his Chewbacca persona, introducing video games and a new Disney theme park attraction, and is of course very popular on the fan convention circuit. MTV Movie Awards conferred a Lifetime Achievement Award on Mayhew in 1997.Ink trace lightly beaded. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition
