Star Wars Actor Alfie Curtis Dead At 87

Star Wars Actor Alfie Curtis Dead At 87

Dr. Evazan might not have the same legacy as Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader in Star Wars canon, but he could be seen in the Mos Eisley Cantina in George Lucas' 1997 classic film. Mark Hamill reacted to the actor's death Tuesday by posting a tribute on Twitter.

He wrote: "Sorry to say that Alfie Curtis who worked with you on Episode IV of Star Wars passed away last week".

The Hollywood Reporter reports Curtis also had a role as the Milkman in David Lynch's 1980 movie "The Elephant Man" and appeared on British TV series like "Cribb and Ted" and "Lost Empires".

Some shared their condolences on Twitter. The late actress, who starred as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy, passed away at the age of 60 in December 2016, four days after suffering cardiac arrest during a flight from London to Los Angeles. A cause of death has yet to be revealed.

The character of Dr. Evazan then later appeared in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Remember when Luke accidentally bumped into Ponda Baba in the Cantina and a mutilated human came in between them to tell the young Force user that he best be careful because they were wanted men with a death sentence on twelve systems? As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was amusing, king & a real gentleman.

"No one's ever really gone..."
