Star Wars Original Boba Fett Actor Jeremy Bulloch Has Died At Age 75

Jeremy Bulloch, who played Boba Fett in the original Star Wars trilogy, has passed away, aged 75. The news was confirmed in a statement issued by his agent.

According to the BBC, it said:

“He had a long and happy career spanning more than 45 years. He was devoted to his wife, three sons, and 10 grandchildren and they will miss him terribly.”

The official Star Wars account also paid tribute to the actor, whom they said would be “remembered not only for his iconic portrayal of the legendary character, but also for his warmth and generous spirit which have become an enduring part of his rich legacy.” Mark Hamill hailed Bulloch as a “fine actor, delightful company & so kind to everyone lucky enough to meet or work with him.”

Daniel Logan, the actor who took over as the Mandalorian warrior and bounty hunter for 2002’s Attack of the Clones, took to Instagram to pay tribute to Bulloch.
