Andrew Jack, who played General Ematt in ‘Star Wars’, dies of coronavirus at 76
SYDNEY: ‘Star Wars’ actor Andrew Jack has died in the UK as a result of the coronavirus, his agent said on April 1. He was 76.
The actor, who also worked as a dialect coach, died in a hospital in Surrey on March 31, Jack’s agent Jill McCullough said in a statement.
“Andrew lived on one of the oldest working houseboats on the Thames, he was fiercely independent but madly in love with his wife, also a dialect coach,” McCullough said.
Jack appeared in ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi’ as General Ematt, as well as ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ and ‘Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens’.
His wife, Gabrielle Rogers, who is quarantined in Australia, posted on social media: “Andrew Jack was diagnosed with coronavirus 2 days ago. He was in no pain, and he slipped away peacefully knowing that his family were all ‘with’ him.”
Passengers arriving in Australia must isolate in hotels for two weeks.
For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.
Jack’s clients for his dialect coaching included Robert Downey Jr and Chris Hemsworth.
