Felix Silla, Who Played Cousin Itt on 'Addams Family', Dies at 84

Felix Silla has sadly passed away.

The actor died at 84 on Friday (April 16) following a battle with pancreatic cancer, per THR.

Felix was best known for his role as Cousin Itt on The Addams Family, where he wore a full-body hair suit, pair of sunglasses and bowler hat.

He also played the robot Twiki on the sci-fi series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and a hang-gliding Ewok in Star Wars: Episode VI — Return of the Jedi.

His Buck Rogers co-star Gil Gerard confirmed the news on Twitter.

Felix died just a few hours ago and the only good I can draw from his passing is that he didn’t suffer any longer. I will miss him terribly, especially the great time we had at our panels,” he wrote.

A long-time Las Vegas resident, Felix is survived by his wife of over 50 years, Sue, and his daughters, Bonnie and Diana. Their son Michael died in March 2020.

Our thoughts are with Felix Silla‘s loved ones at this difficult time.

We have sadly lost all of these stars in 2021.
