Sorry to hear it, but to be honest, I thought he was already dead. Have this vague memory of a news bits a few years ago, but I must be thinking of someone else.


Not easy to play a character behind complete makeup for so long. Mayhew did admirably well.


Did anyone ever see him in anything else?



Mayhew also played the Miniton in Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. 


Most of the scenes featuring the Miniton were stop motion effects by Ray Harryhausen but there were some live action scene that required Mayhew to step in.

Kenny Baker! Yes, that must be it


Actually I thought David Prowse (the guy in the Vader suit) was dead too, but he's not dead either .But they all look at death's door when you look up recent pictures of them
