Peter Cushing Facts
Prior to casting Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), George Lucas considered using him as Obi-Wan Kenobi (a role that ultimately went to Alec Guinness).

He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1989 Queen's Honours List for his services to drama.

Cushing reprised his role, with dialog, from his last film Biggles: Adventures in Time (1986) in the video for the movie's theme song "No Turning Back" by The Immortals. He appears at the end to tell the camera: "I'm a restless sort of guy." Technically, this makes it his last performance and his last line of dialog.
