“It has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to inspire so many generations of Star Wars fans. I have had over 20 years of travelling with my wife Maureen to some amazing countries and have met so many wonderful fans. Thank you all so much and we will miss you all,” Bulloch wrote on his website in 2018.

The British actor appeared in dozens of films and television programs, including a regular appearance on the BBC show “The Newcomers.” Among them, Bulloch appeared in three James Bond films.
