It’s a sad day for cinema fans as one of the most beloved character actors of all time, Kenny Baker, passes away at the age of 83.  Baker is best known for his role as R2D2 in all six Star Wars films; but also appeared in The Goonies, Flash Gordon, and much more. He had fallen ill the last couple of years and was primarily wheelchair bound.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Baker family and the actor will truly be missed by millions of fans.
