Andrew Jack, a British actor and dialect coach who appeared in multiple “Star Wars” films, has died at 76 due to complications from the coronavirus.

Jack, who played General Ematt in “Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens” and “Star Wars Episode VIII — The Last Jedi,” also served as dialect coach for films including “Avengers: Endgame,” “The Nightingale” and “Eastern Promises,” for actors including Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson and Robert Downey Jr.

Jack died in a hospital in Surrey on Tuesday, his agent Jill McCullough said in a statement Wednesday.

“Andrew lived on one of the oldest working houseboats on the Thames, he was fiercely independent but madly in love with his wife, also a dialect coach,” McCullough said, according to The Associated Press.
