Arie Dekker

Chewbacca's Stunt Double

First Ever Signing

Arie Dekker is a British Actor and Stuntman, born on the Wirral, Merseyside. In his youth he was a talented sportsman, most notably a swimmer, winning medals at County, National and European competitions. 

Arie is best known for his role as Chewbacca’s stunt double in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’. 

At 6ft11 his physicality, high level of fitness and mental toughness made him an ideal candidate to truly showcase Chewbacca’s fighting skills and warrior lineage. Arie spent many months perfecting the movements of the character to ensure his performance matched seamlessly to Joonas Suotamo’s. 

Other credits include a stunt double role in the upcoming Amazon Original ‘Carnival Row’, as Chewbacca in a Nissan/Star Wars Commercial and again as Chewbacca during a European promotional tour that included an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival.
