Meet Twiki and Cousin Itt Actor Felix Silla at Retro Con 2019!

 

Our 40th anniversary celebration of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century continues as we bring another of its stars to Retro Con: Actor Felix Silla!

 

 

Felix played Buck Rogers’ trusty ambuquad “Twiki” in nearly all 32 episodes of the classic 70’s TV series which ran from 1979 to 1981. Through Felix’s emoting in the costume, and voice characterizations by the legendary Mel Blanc, the feisty character Twiki has made his indelible mark on pop culture!   

 

“Biddi biddi biddi, what’s up, Buck?”

 

Felix has also had many other notable roles in his career of more than 50 years. He played the “hair follicle-enriched” Cousin Itt in the classic tv series The Addams Family, was one of the “Dinks” in Spaceballs, played Lucifer in the original Battlestar Galactica series, played/stunt performed the hang gliding ewoks in Return of the Jedi, and was also the peculiar space alien “Meathead” in Meatballs Part II!
