Chewbacca, Actor Peter Mayhew, Has Died

From Esquire magazine online:

 

 

Star Wars actor Peter Mayhew, who played the beloved furry giant Chewbacca for nearly four decades, died in his home at the age of 74.  ...In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Harrison Ford put it best: "These aspects of his own personality, plus his wit and grace, he brought to Chewbacca. We were partners in film and friends in life for over 30 years and I loved him. He invested his soul in the character and brought great pleasure to the Star Wars audience.

Peter played Chewbacca so convincingly.  He was tall - 7 2" as I recall.  He was even in the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special.

What a fortunate and interesting career he's had. Immortal character.
