LONDON — A “Star Wars” actor and well-known dialect coach has become the latest celebrity to die from coronavirus.
Jack’s wife, fellow dialect coach Gabrielle Rogers, tweeted that her husband was diagnosed with COVID-19 two days before his death.
“He was in no pain, and he slipped away peacefully knowing that his family were all ‘with’ him,” wrote Rogers, who recently flew to Australia and has been quarantined.
Jack’s agent, Jill McCullough, also released a statement about his death, saying he “lived on one of the oldest working houseboats on the Thames” and “was fiercely independent but madly in love with his wife,” according to the AP.
