Today is a sad day for Star Wars fans , as actor Jeremy Bulloch , who played Boba Fett in the original franchise trilogy, has died at age 75, as confirmed by actor Daniel Logan, who also played the character but in its young version in Star Wars: Episode II- Attack of the Clones. This represents difficult news for fans of the saga because less than a month ago they had to mourn the departure of David Prowse who played Darth Vader in the same films.
Logan reported on the death of the actor through his Instagram account, where he published a photograph with him, facing the sea, in a publication in which he took the opportunity to highlight how important Bulloch was in his acting career.
“It makes me cry to have to announce that Jeremy Bulloch is gone. Rest in peace, legend. I will never forget everything you taught me. I will love you forever. The conventions will not be the same without you. May the force be with you always.” Logan wrote in the caption on the aforementioned social network.
On the other hand, fans of the franchise lamented on social networks, especially on Twitter, the death of the actor, whom they fondly remembered with photographs and the famous images of the film in which he gives Darth Vader to Han Solo himself. To remember him, fans of the franchise proposed a marathon from the original trilogy.
His first participation in the ‘Star Wars’ universe as the bounty hunter Boba Fett was in the film The Empire Strikes Back and later he was again in Return of the Jedi, where he shared the camera with Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Ian McDiarmid, Anthony Daniels, among others.
