“Star Wars” actor Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca in the original trilogy, died on Tuesday, his family announced on his Twitter. He was 74.
Co-stars saluted Mayhew as a performer whose inner poise and grace shone through in his character.

“Peter Mayhew was a kind and gentle man, possessed of great dignity and noble character,” said Harrison Ford, who as Han Solo, shared many scenes with Mayhew.

“Chewbacca was an important part of the success of the films we made together.”

Mark Hamill, who starred as Luke Skywalker in the franchise, called Mayhew “the gentlest of giants”.

“A big man with an even bigger heart who never failed to make me smile, and a loyal friend who I loved dearly,” Hamill wrote on Twitter.

Suotamo remembered Mayhew as “an absolutely one-of-kind gentleman and a legend of unrivaled class”.
