Clancy Brown showed up in the Valentine’s Day episode of The Star Wars Show, where he briefly spoke about the variety of roles he’s voiced, including Savage Opress from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Ryder Azadi from Star Wars Rebels.
For those of you not familiar with either character, Savage Opress was a Dathomirian Nightbrother who was chosen by Asajj Ventress as a way to exact revenge on her former Master, Count Dooku. Later, Savage learned of his kinship to Darth Maul from Mother Talzin and went about rescuing him from Lotho Minor and bringing him back to Dathomir, where Talzin restored Maul’s mind and body.
And as for Ryder Azadi, he used to be the Governor of Lothal, but because he supported the revolutionary broadcasts of Ephraim and Mira Bridger, he was eventually arrested and imprisoned. He was able to escape after the Bridgers coordinated a prison break. Azadi was the one to break the news of their death to Ezra, and after some convincing, Azadi joined the Rebellion’s cause to fight back against the Imperial forces on Lothal.
Both characters are so wildly different from each other, but Brown expertly gives them individual traits. And even though Star Wars Rebels is coming to an end, I hope he’ll return to voice characters in future Star Wars projects
