Jar Jar Binks actor ‘considered suicide’ after Star Wars prequel backlash


Ahmed Best, the actor who supplied the motion-capture performance and voice of Jar Jar Binks in the little-loved Star Wars prequels, has said the reception to his role led him to consider taking his own life. Best, who was 25 at the time of the release of the first in the trilogy of prequels, The Phantom Menace, in 1999, tweeted that he “faced a media backlash that still affects my career today”.
