It is with great sadness that we learnt this morning of the passing of The Empire Strikes Back actor Ian Liston. Ian played the role of the pilot Wes Janson in the iconic movie.
5 October 2016
We regret to announce that Ian Liston has died. He would have wished to acknowledge the work of the Royal Marsden Hospital where he was proud to have taken part in experimental treatments that not only prolonged his life but promise to do the same for many future victims of prostate cancer.
May the Force be with him.
Ian was also well known to UK Sci-Fi fans for his role in the 1979 Doctor Who tale The Armageddon Factor.
Take a few moments to look back at our 2005 interview with Ian, which you can find here.
Everyone at Jedi News extends their sympathies and thoughts to Ian’s family and friends.
