Phoenix, AZ March 18, 2010: Daniel Logan, who played the young Boba Fett in STAR WARS: Episode II - Attack of the Clones will be attending the Phoenix Comicon.
“Beware if you have a bounty on your head!” says Joe Boudrie, Director of Programming at the Phoenix Comicon.
Daniel Logan, a New Zealand native, started acting when he was 10 years old. He got his break when local children's rugby teams were being scouted for a TV commercial. After auditioning with hundreds of other young rugby players, Daniel got the part, his first acting roll. He played a little boy who gets knocked into the mud by Auckland rugby star Michael Jones. Daniel was proclaimed a natural by the director of the commercial.
Daniel was noticed by other casting agents and that break led to more commercials and TV appearances, including a recurring role in episodes of the New Zealand medical series Shortland Street and a guest appearance in the international hit Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Daniel also starred in the short film, Falling Sparrows and provided the lead & supporting voices in two animated series' Tamota and Takapu.
"I know everyone is excited about Daniel's role of the young Boba Fett, but personally I want to ask him what it was like meeting Kevin Sorbo!" Anabel Martinez, Marketing Director for the Phoenix Comicon commented.
Daniel's most recent project was starring in The Legend of Johnny Lingo. At the top of this young actor's growing resume sits STAR WARS: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, with the coveted role of Boba Fett. Daniel won the part, out of thousands who tried out, after just one audition.
