Character actor Alfie Curtis has passed away. His most notable role was as the irascible Dr. Evazan (AKA "scruffy human") from the film Star Wars: A New Hope.

Mark Hamill described Curtis thusly;

As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was funny, kind & a real gentleman. Thanks Alf - you'll be missed. #RIP ❤️

You may not have liked Luke, but we sure liked you for giving us one of the most memorable and quotable scenes in the film! You will be missed.

  • I love how they gave him this massive back-story after the fact. When the film was originally released he didn't even get a name-check or a credit but they clearly recognised how memorable he was to fans.
