The original star of bounty hunter Boba Fett has passed away at the age of 75.

Jeremy Bulloch, who played bounty hunter Boba Fett in the original 'Star Wars' trilogy, has died from Parkinson's disease. The English actor passed away on Thursday at a London hospital.

The actor's agents say his death was due to health complications. He suffered with the disease for many years.

Bulloch was well-known to 'Star Wars' fans for his appearance as the scene-stealing bounty hunter in 'The Empire Strikes Back' and once again in 'Return of the Jedi'. He also made an appearance in 'Revenge of the Sith' as Captain Colton.

Apart from the sci-fi series, Jeremy Bulloch was also an actor on the TV series 'The Bill', 'Casualty', and 'Robin Hood'. He was also in Roger Moore's 'Octopussy'.

Stars and fans of the actor's work have been paying tribute to him online, including his 'Star Wars' co-star Mark Hamill. The Luke Skywalker actor tweeted that Bulloch was "the quintessential English gentleman".

Billy Dee Williams and Ming-Na Wen, who both have roles in the current Disney+ series 'The Mandalorian', also paid tribute. Williams of course also played Lando Calrissian in the original movie trilogy.
