    Kenny Baker dead at 83.

    Sounds like Kenny Baker has passed away. Obviously known for R2D2, he was in many films over his career, including Time Bandits, Flash Gordon, and I think he was in Amadeus as well. Hate to see another part of my childhood go.

    Was he in Under the Rainbow, with Carrie Fisher, too? Yesterday, Time Bandits was on (I only caught the last half or so); that was (and still is) one of my favorites and I hadn't seen it in ages. I walked passed him and a group of friends/guards at some convention (maybe SW Celebration IV in LA?) and just waved.

    I think his career deserves a separate thread here at SSG. You were the spirit of Artoo-Deetoo, the spirit of the Star Wars saga itself.
    Too late; I already copyrighted these parodies: Rogue Juan, Rogue Won, Rogue Huan, Rogue Wan, Rogue Obi-Wan, Rouge One, Rogue Wand.

    I had forgotten he was in the Elephant Man and Willow as well.
