Dr. Evazan might not have the same legacy as Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader in Star Wars canon, but he could be seen in the Mos Eisley Cantina in George Lucas' 1997 classic film.

He accompanied it with a amusing artwork of a sketch showing Fisher, who passed away suddenly past year, in robes and a crown, carrying her famous french bulldog, Gary Fisher, in one hand as she stuck up the middle finger of the other. "As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was amusing, kind & a real gentleman", he added.

He portrayed Dr. Cornelius Evazan in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. "We're wanted men. I have the death sentence on 12 systems", he says.

Mark Hamill, who played Luke, wrote a tribute to Curtis. "Thanks Alf - you'll be missed".

In a nutshell, Curtis' Star Wars character is a promising plastic surgeon whose revolutionized medical techniques but ended up hurting his patients.

A ideal match for his X chromosome came up with the name Robi737, who he also shared other DNA with. "I don't know how long it's going to take for me to get over this feeling", Robinson said.


Hoards of fans have taken to Twitter to mourn the actor's death.

In 2016's "Star Wars" movie, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", the legend of Evazan and Ponda Baba continued when the characters named "Jyn Erso" and "Cassian Andor" briefly encountered the pair on Jedha.

"No one's ever really gone..."

Curtis' film and television credits also include roles in The Elephant Man, Ladykillers and Cribb. "I don't like you either" is still the best delivered".

His death was announced on the Star Wars Comic Book website yesterday, although the cause has not been confirmed.
