    Bob Anderson, Stunts: Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. Bob Anderson was born on Septem in Gosport, Hampshire, England as Robert James Gilbert Anderson. He is known for his work on Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (), Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi () and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring .
