Star Wars actor Alan Harris has died aged 81.
The actor appeared in all three of the original films as different characters but was mostly known for his role as Bossk in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
Harris died on Saturday, January 25th following a battle with lung cancer, which he was diagnosed with two years ago in 2018.
Confirming the news via Facebook, Imperial Signings said: "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."
They continued: "Alan will be sadly missed by fans around the world. RIP Alan Harris,
"Let's see those pics to honour such a great man"
Alan's former agents, Alliance Agents said in a statement: "He worked on all three original Star Wars films with his most notable role being that of Bossk the reptilian bounty hunter tasked with tracking down the Millennium Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back.
"Years after making the Star Wars films, Alan began a new career attending science fiction conventions and comic-cons all over the world."
They went on to say that Alan "loved meeting his fans, signing autographs for them and telling stories of his time in the film business."
Alan also played the role of a Stormtrooper in all three Star Wars from the original trilogy.
Ahead of finding international success in Hollywood, he worked as a UK model but in 2014 said: "I have no regrets whatsoever at leaving my modelling and theatre career behind."
Leading the tributes, fellow Star Wars actor Jeremy Bulloch who played Boba Fett said: "We were so sorry to hear about Alan Harris - he was one of the nicest guys we have met - he was so modest and so very good with all the fans - he will be greatly missed."
One fan tweeted: "Sad to learn about the passing of Alan Harris, he was a bit player in several roles in several Star Wars Films, but will best be remembered as Bossk from Empire Strikes Back."
While a second added: "Rest In Peace to the wonderful Alan Harris! Best known for playing the role of Bossk in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back! I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years ago and it was unforgetful."
