The english actor Jeremy Bulloach who played Star Wars favourite bounty hunter 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.

Bulloch also appeared in the James Bond film Octopussy in 1983, and the BBC TV series Doctor Who in the 1970s.

Daniel Logan, who took over from Bulloch to play the role of Boba Fett in the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, paid tribute to the actor on Instagram.

“RIP Legend I’ll never forget all you’ve taught me. I’ll love you forever,” he wrote.

“Conventions won’t be the same without you. May the force be with you always.”

Mark Hamil, who played Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, described Bulloch as the “quintessential English gentleman”.

“A fine actor, delightful company and so kind to everyone lucky enough to meet or work with him,” he wrote on Twitter.

“I will deeply miss him and am so grateful to have known him.”
