Wookie stunt double

I kinda was amazed how quickly Chewie mounted those narrow metalic stairs in Starkiller base… Meet Joonas Suotamo: Peter Mayhew’s stand in. [Joonas grew up in Espoo, Finland and became interested in acting through performing in plays during his youth. Basketball offered the opportunity to go and study in Pennsylvania State University in the United States. Joonas chose film studies over acting because of perceived lack of roles for tall people. His film studies carried fruit when he was cast in the anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens as the Chewbacca Double.]
