‘Star Wars’ actor Andrew Jack dies of COVID-19. British actor and voice coach Andrew Jack has died of coronavirus. He turned 76 years old.
The ‘Star Wars’ actor died alone at a hospital in Surrey, England, as his wife is quarantined in Australia, reports several international media, including CNN.
“She had no way of seeing or talking to him during the latter part of his life, and there is a risk that a funeral will not be held,” Andrew Jack’s agent Jill McCullough said.
Andrew Jack has worked as a voice and dialect coach on several major productions such as ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘Lord of the Rings’, ‘The Avengers’ as well as the upcoming ‘Batman’ which he had just completed.
Here he helped the actors achieve the right dialect for the film.
But he has also starred in several of the latest ‘Star Wars’ films, where he both worked behind the camera, voiced the character Moloch in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’, and played Caluan Ematt in ‘The Force Awakens’ and ‘The Last Jedi’.
On his social media, his wife, Gabrielle Rogers, writes that she felt she was with him lately, even though she was physically located in Australia.
“He wasn’t in pain, and he quietly slept knowing that his family” was there “with him.”
