Star Wars actor Andrew Jack has died aged 76 from the coronavirus.

The star, who was also a dialect coach, passed away this morning at a hospital just outside of London as a result of complications developed from the virus.

Only this year Jack was working with a cast including Robert Pattinson on The Batman, which shut down production in Britain on March 14.

Over the course of his career, he worked with Robert Downey Jr in 1992’s Chaplin and Pierce Brosnan on GoldenEye in 1995.

He also formed the Middle-earth accents for the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, teaching the accents to the cast.

Andrew also designed and taught the accents for the Greeks and Trojans in 2004’s hit film Troy.

He served as the dialect coach on Avengers: Endgame, Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Alien v. Predator, Die Another Day, and Captain America.

The actor was most recently married to Gabrielle Rogers between 2019 up to his death.
