Actor Andrew Jack, best known as the man who played Caluan Ematt in the Star Wars franchise, has passed away two days after contracting the novel coronavirus. He was 76.

Jack's agent Jill McCullough confirmed his death. He died in a Surrey hospital on Tuesday.

McCullough said she has been flooded with tributes to one of the acting world's "brightest and clearest voices."

The British actor, who was seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) and Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), had appeared in over 80 films and was also a successful dialect coach.

Jack's fellow Star Wars actor Greg Grunberg said he was "devastated" to learn of his death, describing him as a "wonderful, talented, beloved gentleman."

"He is one of the kindest people I've ever worked with," Grunberg added.

Jack, who lived on a houseboat on the River Thames, had been "full of life, funny, charming and a joy to be around. He was still working full-pelt, currently coaching on the new Batman," according to his agent.

The actor had been unable to see his wife and fellow dialect coach Gabrielle Rogers, who was "stuck in quarantine in Australia, having just flown in from New Zealand last week," McCullough said.
