    The man in the suit – Bolaji Badejo – was a Nigerian student studying in London at the time of casting. He wasn’t an actor – he was just cast due to his physique; 7ft 2in and thin as a reed. He never appeared in anything again and it’s believed that he committed suicide shortly after returning home to Nigeria. There’s some test footage of him here rehearsing movements on set http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpKi41a1rJI wearing just the headpiece of his costume.
