Mark Hamill, his Star Wars co-star, confirmed the news on Tuesday (December 26).

ALFIE CURTIS made the #StarWars Mos Eisley Cantina scene (one of the most memorable I’ve ever been a part of) even MORE memorable. As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was funny, kind & a real gentleman. Thanks Alf – you’ll be missed. #RIP <3 – mh." he wrote.

Alfie also had roles in movies over the years like The Elephant Man, and in television shows including Cribb and Lost Empires.
