It it with sadness that we report that Alfie Curtis, who played Dr Cornelius Evazan in Star Wars: A New Hope has passed away (aged 87).
We send our love and wishes to his family at this difficult time.
UPDATE: Tweet from Mark Hamill….
ALFIE CURTIS made the #StarWars Mos Eisley Cantina scene (one of the most memorable I’ve ever been a part of) even MORE memorable. As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was funny, kind & a real gentleman. Thanks Alf- you’ll be missed. #RIP ❤️- mh pic.twitter.com/laxKvbGmrd
