‘Star Wars’: Original Bossk Actor Alan Harris Passes Away At 81

Alan Harris, who’s best known for playing Bossk and other Star Wars characters in the original trilogy, has passed away at the age of 81.

Bossk has earned a cult following ever since his first appearance in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Bossk has gone on to appear in Return of the Jedi, The Clone Wars and various other Star Wars mediums over the years. Most recently, it was revealed that Bossk was even supposed to have a cameo appearance in Colin Trevorrow’s unmade Star Wars: Duel of the Fates.

Unfortunately, it has been confirmed via a Facebook post from Imperial Signings that Alan Harris — the actor behind Bossk, a stormtrooper, a rebel escort and a Bespin security guard — in the Star Wars original trilogy, has passed away at the age of 81. Alan Harris had been going through a battle with lung cancer before passing away on Friday. You can read what Imperial Signings had to say regarding Bossk actor Alan Harris’ death below.

“Very sad news has just come in that Alan Harris sadly passed away this morning. Alan was a true gent and a fan favourite. Alan had battled health issues for a number of years yet still fought through pain to attend shows and meet fans. ‘Alan will be sadly missed by fans around the world. RIP Alan Harris.”
