Actor Jeremy Bulloch, who played Boba Fett in the original Star Wars trilogy, has died aged 75.
He died in hospital on Thursday from health complications after living with Parkinson's disease for many years, his agent said.
"He had a long and happy career spanning more than 45 years," a statement said.
"He was devoted to his wife, three sons, and 10 grandchildren and they will miss him terribly."
Bulloch was best known for playing bounty hunter Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
The character has since featured in the second season of Star Wars spin-off series, The Mandalorian.
Born in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, Bulloch's first major role was in the musical film Summer Holiday in 1963, aged 17. He starred alongside Sir Cliff Richard, who played Don, as Edwin, one of Don's friends.
Bulloch also appeared in James Bond film Octopussy in 1983, and the BBC TV series Doctor Who in the 1970s.
