Andrew Jack, a very famous British actor and a dialect coach, who had played roles in “Star Wars” movies has died at the age of 76 in a hospital in Surrey, England.

Jill McCullogh, who was Andrew’s agents, said in a statement that he died on Tuesday after contracting with the coronavirus. She said, “Andrew lived on one of the oldest working houseboats on the Thames, he was fiercely independent but madly in love with his wife, also a dialect coach, Gabrielle Rogers.”

The agent further added that Andrew’s wife was stuck in quarantine in Australia and that she could not even see him before. However, he also said that there are chances that the Funeral may not be held.

The British actor has also worked in several other projects, especially as a vocal coach in various blockbuster movies. Some of the famous movie franchises are “The Avengers,” “The Guardian of Galaxy,” and “The Lord of the Rings” series.


Jack was famous for his role as Major Emmat in the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”. He had a long association with the “Star Wars” films and was responsible for playing roles both behind and the front of the camera. Jack also played voice parts in “Solo: A Star Wars Story”.

His agent said that he was currently working on various projects, including the coaching for the new “Batman,” which is expected to be released next year.

Andrew Jack was, without any doubt, a great dialect coach because it involves understanding and gaining the trust of the actors, which is a difficult task. All his co-actors have always adored him on set and in real life for his character and distinct personality.

His fellow Star Wars actor Greg Grunberg said that he was devasted to learn about Andrew’s death. Greg described him as “a talented, wonderful and beloved gentleman,” he said

“He is one of the kindest people I’ve ever worked with,”

The American actor Sean Astin, who worked with Andrew on the famous “The Lord of the Rings,” took to Twitter to pay tribute to his fellow. Sean described him as powerful and a gentleman, he said

Andrew Jack loved a unique theory of gravity, that we are all being pushed down, instead of pulled down. We loved Andrew Jack,”

The executive producer of “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” Christopher Miller, also paid tribute to the actor.
