We are very pleased to announce Brian Herring has been inducted as an Honorary Member of the UK Garrison.

Brian worked with Neal Scanlan’s CFX team as one of the two principal puppeteers for BB-8 in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens and will reprise the role in Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Brian and Dave Chapman spent many weeks working to understand how BB-8 should ‘act’ in the film resulting in a practical special effect that introduced an extremely warmly received new droid into the Star Wars universe.

Brian was inducted into the UKG by Warwick Davis and UKG Commanding Officer, Gary Hailes, at the Return of the Garrison event at the National Space Centre in Leicester on Saturday 24th June 2017.
