TARS

Character

TARS is one of four former U.S. Marine Corps tactical robots along with PLEX, CASE and KIPP featured in the Interstellar universe. He is one of the crew members of Endurance along with Cooper, Brand, Doyle, Romilly, and CASE. TARS' personality can be characterized as witty, sarcastic, and humorous, traits programmed into him to make him a better suited companion. TARS also appears to be somewhat more versatile than CASE, being suited for tasks ranging from piloting to data collection.

TARS is voiced by actor Bill Irwin who also operated the hydraulics of the robot. He controlled the heavy machinery which weighed almost 200 pounds. The actor was digitally removed during post production as he was a few inches taller than TARS.
