Tim Rose

Booth 016

Tim started his career with Jim Henson in New York working on “Sesame Street”. He was one of the forerunners of animatronic design and is still in great demand today.

His many credits include several Muppet movies, “Dinosaurs”, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Return to OZ, Fierce Creatures, Walking with Dinosaurs, Spitting Image, “Dr Who” and the inimitable Howard the Duck.

Most famous of all is his character Admiral Ackbar in both Star Wars: Episode VI–Return of the Jedi (with his famous line “It’s a Trap!”) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He also appears as “Shollan” – a white Calamari in Star Wars: Rogue One.

As well as several movie projects, Tim has recently been working with his old friend Paul Zerdin, winner of America’s Got Talent 2015, on new puppets for his show.
