Star Wars Actor Alfie Curtis Dies Aged 87

Star Wars Actor Alfie Curtis Dies Aged 87

The death was later announced on the Comic Book Star Wars website, with a message which said: "Actor Alfie Curtis, famous for his portrayal of Dr. Evazan in the original Star Wars, has passed away at the age of 87".

Although Evazan was never named in Star Wars, and appeared only briefly, his backstory was developed elsewhere in the Expanded Universe (now referred to as Legends).

Although Curtis' role in George Lucas' sci-fi classic was brief, his scene remains one of Star Wars' most memorable.

As previously reported, Hamill posted a tribute to Fisher on Wednesday, December 27, via Twitter. As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was amusing, kind & a real gentleman. "Thanks Alf - you'll be missed". "You just watch yourself".

Fans also paid their respects. "Rest in peace, Dr. Evazan".

"No one's ever really gone..." When Luke (Mark Hamill) accidentally ran into Ponda Baba, Evazan intervened and told young Skywalker that he has "the death sentence on 12 systems". "Even STAR WARS itself ripped it off, attempting to top it on several times only to fall short of the original's ramshackle magic", another wrote. See more photos of Star Wars actors here.

We send our love and wishes to his family at this hard time.
