We’ve lost another beloved Star Wars actor from the original Star Wars trilogy. Read everything we’ve learned about the this actor’s death.
Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw at a theater. I was in awe of the sights, sounds, and action on the big screen. Later renamed New Hope, this movie was released in 1977. Unfortunately, these iconic actors we love so much are aging, and we have lost many of these legends.
In a recent article, we reported the passing of David Prowse here. He portrayed the legendary Darth Vader in the “Star Wars” Original Trilogy. The Darth Vader character continues to be an iconic symbol of the Star Wars franchise and one of the most loved villains.
Actor David Prowse was 85 years old and he passed following a brief illness. His agent, Thomas Bowington, shares, “It’s with great regret and heart-wrenching sadness for us and millions of fans around the world, to announce our client Dave Prowse has passed away at the age of 85.”
On April 19, 2019, the actor who portrayed the original Chewie passed away. On his Twitter account his family released the following statement:
