58 – Mike Quinn (Muppets, Dark Crystal, Star Wars) – Under The Puppet

April 1, 2021 |

http://www.UnderThePuppet.com – Mike Quinn’s first professional puppetry gig was working for Jim Henson on The Great Muppet Caper.  His second job was working on The Dark Crystal.  Since then he’s puppeteered on a ton of projects including The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted, and The Ghost of Faffner Hall.  He also played the role of Nien Nunb in the film Return of the Jedi and he reprised the role in Star Wars episodes VII-IX.  I talk with Mike Quinn about these roles and more on this episode of Under The Puppet.

Also, this month you can win an exclusive Under the Puppet Puppeteer Headband!  Listen to find out how to enter.
