In addition, when casting the original Star Wars (1977); director George Lucas needed a tall actor who could fit the role of the hairy alien Chewbacca. He originally had in mind 6-foot-6-inch (1.98 m) bodybuilder Dave Prowse, but Prowse chose to play Darth Vader.  Also, this led Lucas to cast Peter Mayhew autographs. Then again, who was working as an orderly in the radiology department of King’s College Hospital. He became aware of a casting call for Star Wars which was filming at Elstree Studios. As well as, the 7-foot-3-inch (2.21 m) tall actor was immediately cast as Chewbacca after he stood up to greet Lucas.

Furthermore, Mayhew modelled his performance of Chewbacca after researching the behaviour of bears; monkeys and gorillas he saw at London Zoo. Lucas said Mayhew “the closest any human being could be to a wookiee. Big heart, gentle nature and I learnt to always let him win”. The character did not have any lines; the sounds he made being derived from sound recordings of animal noises.
