Star Wars actor and English-American actor, Peter Mayhew is dead.

Mayhew who played the iconic character Chewbacca, in the movie died at the age of 74.

Mayhew’s family have announced his passing stating that he died peacefully on Tuesday while surrounded by his loved ones at his Texas home.

His family in a statement said: “Peter was the man behind the mask of Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy, episode 3 of the prequels and the New Triology.

“He fought his way back from being wheelchair-bound to stand tall and portray Chewbacca once more in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“He also consulted on The Last Jedi in an attempt to teach his successor.

“He put his heart and soul into the role of Chewbacca and it showed in every frame of the films from his knock kneed running, firing his bowcaster from the hip, his bright blue eyes, down to each subtle movement of his head and mouth.

“But, to him, the Star Wars family meant so much more to him than a role in the film.”
