Julian Glover is now the first person to be officially credited in each of Lucasfilm’s three franchises: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Willow

While Lucasfilm is mostly known for Star Wars, it actually has three franchises of note: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Willow. The common link is that they all stemmed from the creative genius of George Lucas, and all three franchises are continuing their storytelling under the leadership of Kathy Kennedy.

But there is now another common link between the three: Julian Glover has appeared in all three franchises. He is the first actor to be credited as appearing in all three, having shown up in a cameo role for the Willow series. He showed up in episode 7, “Beyond the Shattered Sea,” playing the old man named Zeb. He lives alone in a remote shack on the Shattered Sea, having been on many expeditions in his many years.

He shows up briefly, acting strange and a bit crazy, but before long Graydon knocks him out as they make their hasty escape from the Gales. That’s the last we see of him, but it’s certainly enjoyable in the moments he does appear. And his face will be quite familiar to Lucasfilm fans, even though it’s behind a beard this time.

He previously played General Maximilian Veers in The Empire Strikes Back, commanding the Empire’s ground assault on Hoth from his AT-AT walker. A decade later, he appeared in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade as Walter Donovan, who enlists both Henry and Indy to aid his quest to find the Holy Grail.

And if working on Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Willow wasn’t enough, Glover has also appeared in Doctor Who, Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones (among other things). So he’s accumulated quite the resume in the world of fantasy film and TV, including being the first credited actor to appear in these three notable Lucasfilm properties.
