A New Hope, Luke Skywalker runs into a less-than-welcoming cantina attendant named Dr. Cornelius Evazan, who randomly decides that he doesn't like him and sics his friend Ponda Baba to attack him before Obi-Wan Kenobi intervenes. Fans and cast members have taken to Twitter to share their tributes, including Mark Hamill.

In addition to his role as Evazan, Curtis starred in several British TV series namely "Ted" in 1986's television miniseries "Lost Empires", "Larry Grayson", and "Matt Beckett" on the 1980-1981 television series "Cribb".

Ex-Steeler Harrison signs with Patriots
The 39-year-old and Brady , 40, have seven Super Bowl titles and nearly 500 games under their combined belts. Harrison's limited playing time was a given since the Steelers preferred to use younger pass rushers in T.J.

Some shared their condolences on Twitter.

Hamill recalls the cantina scene as "one of the most memorable". As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was amusing, kind & a real gentleman. He was happy to see you in the recent film. "The bar scene in #StarWars remains one of the coolest sequences ever committed to film. Even STAR WARS itself ripped it off, attempting to top it on several times only to fall short of the original's ramshackle magic", another wrote. "I have the death sentence on 12 systems", he tells Skywalker, in a scene that is on the minds of all Star Wars fans right now.
