Sadly the great actor Kenny Baker has died aged 81yrs old. Best remembered for his role as the iconic R2-D2 in the Star wars films, he also played bandit Fidgit in Terry Gillian cult classic Time Bandits (1980) plus many characters in Horror, Sci fi and fantasy films, and although diminutive in stature, he never let his disability stop him from achieving his goals & dreams. RIP Kenny. :|
