    (October 3, 1986- )
    Born in Espoo, Finland
    Basketball player turned actor
    Was Peter Mayhew's body double in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' (2015)
    Took over the role of Chewbacca in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' (2017), 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' (2018), and 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' (2019)
    Height: 6'11
    His first name looks like a typo of ‘Jonas.’
    While playing in the Finnish basketball leagues, he sold insurance to make ends meet.
    He got cast as Chewbacca mainly for his height and because he had the same color eyes (blue) as Mayhew.
    While attending and playing basketball for Penn State, he was twice named to the Academic All-Big Ten Team.
    He graduated Penn State a semester early in order to return to Finland for compulsory military service.
    He was a fan of ‘Star Wars’ growing up and always wanted to play… Luke. (Presumably, he didn’t know he would grow to wookie heights.)
    While in costume as Chewbacca, he carried candies in Chewie’s satchel, which he would give to kids on the set.
