Rohan Nichol (born July 4, 1976) played Captain Raymus Antilles in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. He thought at first he would be portraying Wedge Antilles. It wasnât until he arrived on the Revenge of the Sith set in Sydney that Nichol learned that he would actually play the part of Raymus Antilles, portrayed by Peter Geddis in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Nichol was the original choice to play Captain Antilles, before George Lucas considered using Denis Lawson, the actor that portrayed Wedge Antilles in the original trilogy. However, Lawson turned down the offer and Nichol was once again the choice.
Nichol appeared in the 2011 film Red Dog alongside Revenge of the Sith co-star Keisha Castle-Hughes (Queen Apailana). He also shared screen with Genevieve O'Reilly (Mon Mothma in Episode III) in several episodes of the TV series All Saints.
