Watto - Star Wars

Watto from Star Wars played by Andrew Secombe.

Watto is a fictional male Toydarian slave trader in the Star Wars film series who was played on screen by Andrew Secombe. Watto is a Toydarian trader who owns Anakin and his mother Shmi Skywalker. Watto refuses to sell and give up either of them. Qui-Gon does a deal with Watto that if Anakin wins a pod-race, he agrees to give the slave and his mother to the Jedi knights. When Anakin wins the race, only Anakin is released and Shmi must stay behind

As a Toydarian, Watto is immune to the effects of Jedi mind control tricks that Qui-Gon Jinn tries to use on him to release Anakin. Watto as someone who is always after making money agrees to give Qui-Gon Anakin Skywalker if Anakin wins a Pod-race which Anakins does.

He makes a brief appearance in 'Star Wars II - Attack of the Clones' when Anakin and Padme Amidala visit Tatooine to get Anakins Mother Shmi released. Shmi Skywalker had been sold on.
