'Horrific on-, amusing off-Camera': Twitter Mourns Star Wars' Iconic Dr Evazan

'Horrific on-, amusing off-Camera': Twitter Mourns Star Wars' Iconic Dr Evazan

The entertainment world is in mourning following the death of Star Wars actor Alfie Curtis.

"The cause of Curtis" death has not been revealed.

"As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was amusing, kind & a real gentleman", Hamill - who stars in most recent Star Wars film The Last Jedi - wrote. The actor appeared as Dr. Cornelius Evazan in 1977's A New Hope during the film's iconic Mos Eisley cantina scene. In addition to his memorable role in Star Wars, Curtis also had roles in the 1980 film The Elephant Man, the "80s TV series Cribb and the 1986 TV miniseries Lost Empires".

Although Curtis' role in George Lucas' sci-fi classic was brief, his scene remains one of Star Wars' most memorable. The character name may not ring a bell, but you'd remember the face - he was the angry guy in the Mos Eisley cantina who threatened Luke.

'As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was amusing, kind & a real gentleman. Watch his memorable Star Wars scene below. "Thanks Alf - you'll be missed". The conversation was then cut off when Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alex Guinness) came flying in with a lightsaber.

The news breaks on a day that also happens to be the one-year anniversary of the death of Carrie Fisher, who played Princess/General Leia Organa in the franchise.
