“Star Wars” actor Andrew Jack has passed away from coronavirus. He was 76.

On Tuesday, Jack's rep, Jill McCullough, told TMZ that he died in London from complications developed as a result of the coronavirus.

Jill told the publication that Jack’s wife wasn’t even allowed to be by her husband's side because she’s in quarantine in Australia.

Since the world is trying to battle the pandemic, she added that it may not be possible to accommodate a proper funeral.

In addition to being an actor, Jack was also a dialect coach and was recently hired on for the upcoming “Batman” film starring Robert Pattinson.

During his time with the "Star Wars" franchise, he starred as Major Caluan Ematt in "The Force Awakens" and "The Last Jedi" while also providing the voice of Moloch in "Solo: A Star Wars Story." He helped Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and others tap into their alien language.

Over the course of his career, he coached many notable actors on hundreds of productions to help them perfect accents and dialects. His work can be seen in notable films such as the "Avengers" films, "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," "Snow White and the Huntsman," and "Lord of the Rings."
