Alan Tudyk is quickly becoming a favorite among Star Wars fans for his performance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Alan played the brutally honest droid K-2SO and got a pretty funny compliment from fellow droid actor Anthony Daniels, who played the beloved C-3PO. Alan visited Conan Monday night, where he told the the host about the couple of interactions he’s had with Anthony.

As C-3PO, Anthony Daniels is the rare Star Wars actor to have appeared in all of the movies — including the prequel trilogy and the upcoming The Force Awakens.
