While reading up on some deleted scenes from Return of the Jedi, I came across this picture of an x-wing pilot played by actress Vivienne Chandler. What I'd like to know is, who is she, what squadron did she fly with and, even though she's in a deleted scene, is she still part of the canon of Star Wars.

    Fun fact, that's the helmet prop (with added blast shield) that Luke wears on the Falcon when he's learning to use the Force.

According to Wookieepedia's Chandler page:

Though her scene was cut, Chandler portrayed Dorovio Bold during the Battle of Endor. Her scene was not included in the Blu-Ray release of the film (sourced in this blog)

Whether she's G-canon or not is hard to tell (not being on the Blu-Ray would indicate she's not), but she's C-canon, the character's Wookieepedia page says:

Her photo was revealed years later on StarWars.com's Hyperspace, and she was later named in The Complete Visual Dictionary.

This makes her C-canon at least. (She was previously in starwars.com Databank, but no longer appears.)

  • You might want to update this now that her name was included in the Visual Encyclopedia (which makes her officially canon).
