Star Wars actor and dialect coach Andrew Jack dies from coronavirus

'STAR WARS' ACTOR ANDREW JACK DEAD FROM COVID-19

Andrew Jack, a dialect coach and occasional actor on huge movies such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has died.

Andrew Jack, 76, died in a Surrey hospital on Tuesday. This was confirmed by his rep, Jill McCullough.

He was sadly not with his wife Gabrielle Rogers as she is now in quarantine in Australia and was unable to speak to him before he passed away. Tragically she is stuck in quarantine in Australia having just flown in from NZ last week.

"Andrew was full of life - he was tall and striking with flowing white hair. You wouldn't miss him if he walked into a room".

Jack was now engaged as dialect coach on the new Robert Pattinson-starring Batman flick, which say its production shuttered earlier this month over the coronavirus.

"We lost a man today", tweeted Jack's wife, Gabrielle Rogers, early Tuesday. "Andrew Jack was diagnosed with Coronavirus when admitted to hospital less than 48 hours ago in suburban London", Gabrielle shared in an Instagram tribute. He died today. He was in no pain, and he slipped away peacefully knowing that his children, step children, grandchildren, brother, friends, and I were all "with" him. She trained at the National Theater and graduated from the University of Sydney.

Trump described the Comfort as a "70,000-ton message of hope and solidarity to the incredible people of New York", while Gov. It is meant to relieve stress on hospitals across the city so that they can handle Covid-19 cases more effectively.

Andrew Jack was born in London in January 1944 to actor Stephen Jack and Julia Hutchinson. As such, helping John Boyega (who plays Finn) craft an American accent over his native British one was most likely one of Jack's main responsibilities in the galaxy far, far away.

Andrew was also the dialect coach on a multitude of other films, such as Lord of the Rings, Eastern Promises, Captain America, Alien v/ Predator, Avengers: Endgame, Sherlock Holmes, Men in Black: International and Robin Hood.

Jack also appeared in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi as Resistance Major Caluan Ematt.

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