Peter Sumner


Age: 74

Australian actor who had a small but memorable part as an officer on the Death Star in Star Wars and worked only two days on the 1977 film playing Lt. Pol Treidum, whose "TK-421, do you copy?" line likely will ring a bell for casual fans while the name might not but was enough to make him a fan convention mainstay, who was also the only Australian actor to appear in the film and also appeared in Tony Richardson's Ned Kelly and on the children's show Play School and other Australian series like Spyforce and Heartbreak High.
