Following news of his passing spread Tuesday night, Mark Hamill shared with a Gorgeous remembrance of his one-time costar, tweeting:
ALFIE CURTIS made the #StarWars Mos Eisley Cantina scene (one of the most memorable I’ve ever been a part of) even MORE memorable. As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera that he was funny, sort & a real gentleman. Thanks Alf- you will be missed. #RIP ❤️- mh pic.twitter.com/laxKvbGmrd
