Kenny Baker

The British actor who played R2-D2 in the Star Wars films has died at the age of 83 after a long illness.  Kenny Baker, who was 3ft 8in tall, shot to fame in 1977 when he first played the robot character.   He went on to play the character in the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, as well as the three Star Wars prequels from 1999 to 2005. “He was asked to go out to LA for the new Star Wars premiere but he was told he was too ill to travel. Luckily he did manage to meet George Lucas again when he came to Manchester.”
