(AP Photo)LOS ANGELES – Jeremy Bulloch, the English actor who first donned a helmet, cape and jetpack to play Boba Fett in the original “Star Wars” trilogy, died Thursday.
But Boba Fett quickly became a cult favorite and eventually would emerge as one of the most beloved figures in the “Star Wars” galaxy, inspiring characters and plotlines in other “Star Wars” properties, most notably “The Mandalorian” on Disney+, where Boba Fett has recently reemerged.
He would settle instead for the tiny role of Captain Colton, pilot of Alderaan, and one more flight through the “Star Wars” galaxy, instead.
