Star Wars actor Andrew Jack has died from coronavirus at the age of 76, his agent has confirmed.

He was sadly not with his wife Gabrielle as she is currently in quarantine in Australia.

His agent Jill McCullough told Metro.co.uk: "He died this morning of Covid-19 at St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey.

"Andrew lived on one the oldest working houseboats on the Thames, he was fiercely independent but madly in love with his wife; also a dialect coach; Gabrielle Rogers.

"Tragically she is stuck in quarantine in Australia having just flown in from NZ last week.

"She was unable to see or talk to him at the end of his life and there is a chance a funeral may not be held."

Andrew played Major Caluan Ematt in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

He also worked as a dialect coach.

Andrew worked with Robert Downey Jr in 1992's Chaplin and Pierce Brosnan on GoldenEye in 1995.
