Supporting roles rarely get the spotlight. But sidekicks are often my favorite roles.
Here are 13 of My Favorite SciFi Sidekicks:
1. Chewbacca (from Star Wars) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ EveryoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s favorite. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Han SoloÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s furry sidekick that only speaks in growls.
Quote: Sorry.. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t speak wookie.
2. Guy Fleegman (from Galaxy Quest) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ He only played Crewman Number 6, but his character stole the show. Plucky and hilarious, he eventually gained a role as Security Chief on the new Galaxy Quest show.
Quote: Ã¢â‚¬Å“I’m just a glorified extra, Fred. I’m a dead man anyway. If I’m gonna die, I’d rather go out a hero than a coward.Ã¢â‚¬Â
