The original Star Wars Boba Fett Actor Jeremy Bulloch has just passed away at the age of 75.
Jeremy stared as Boba Fett in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.
While he hadn’t acted in a Star Wars film for years, he was a regular on the Star Wars Convention circuit and at Star Wars Weekends in Hollywood Studios until he retired from live appearances back in 2018.
Rest in Peace to Jeremy Bulloch, the man who brought Boba Fett to life in the Original Trilogy.

Here is the statement from Fanthatracks:
“Sad new reaches the site as our friend Jeremy Bulloch, the man who originally inhabited the armor of the fearsome Boba Fett, has passed away aged 75.“
Born in Leicestershire in 1945, Jeremy began a stellar career in 1958 in TV commercials before the leap to film and TV. He starred in the classic Summer Holiday alongside Cliff Richard, played Hamlet, appeared in Doctor Who, Robin of Sherwood, StarHyke and of course was the man behind Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
