How the Emperor found his Jedi voice

Actor Ian McDiarmid talks about Emperor Palpatine

The official Star Wars YouTube channel has posted a video in preparation for its upcoming Celebration convention, in which actor Ian McDiarmid, who played Emperor Palpatine, discusses finding the right evil voice for his character.

The interview was from 2005, but the channel is posting it now because McDiarmid is making his first U.S. appearance at the upcoming show, set to begin on Thursday, Aug. 23, in Orlando, Fla.
