George Lucas, David Bowie and Jim Henson.

David Bowie (b. 1947) is a pop singer and actor who starred in Labyrinth as Jareth, the Goblin King.

On February 15, 1985, Jim Henson's Red Book noted that David Bowie's "deal is set." From the start of development in 1983, Jim knew he wanted to collaborate with a major performer for the music of Labyrinth, and to have them play Jareth. Along with knowing and appreciating Bowie's work, and his son John Henson's fandom for the performer, Henson was drawn to Bowie's "other-worldliness and energy", a good match for the film's world.[1]

Bowie worked with the Creature Shop again for his music video for "The Pretty Things Are Going to Hell." Although it was never released, the puppet modeled after Bowie's Ziggy Stardust persona, can be seen at Rick Lyon's website.
