"I really, really liked him. I do not knowhow Silas treats me, and he's wonderful. When I delivered Luke to Tatooine at the end of the third episode, I was riding on damn blue gymnastic horse.

I thought I was being bullied. During filming «Obi-Wan» The coach saw that I really liked the camel, and he said, "He's almost done with his career. He is 20 years old and we are looking for a home for him. I thought, “Oh nDon't tell me that. " I will come home with a camel and say, “Hey! We can leave the camel in the garden, can't we? ”
