Garrick Hagon has reportedly joined the Who crew in Spain for Toby Whithouse's Wild West-themed episode.


The actor is best known for his role as Biggs Darklighter in Star Wars: A New Hope. As Luke Skywalker's best friend from Tatooine, Biggs had a much larger role in the movie's first cut, but remains a well-known character for hardcore fans.


Genshiken Spain, organisers of the FreakCon convention, wrote on Twitter, "Garrick Hagon, our guest at FreakCon, is currently shooting in Almeria, filming a series of Doctor Who."


Guest actor, Rob Cavazos, later Tweeted, "I am currently working with an actor who was in the first Star Wars film. I am by no means a fanboy, but that's still pretty awesome!"


The London born, but Canadian-raised, Hagon originally appeared in Doctor Who 40 years ago in The Mutants.
