This evening, as we recorded a commentary for The Force Awakens, we got the sad news that Kenny Baker, the man beneath the dome of R2-D2, passed away.
All of us here at Talk Star Wars are deeply saddened by the news and our thoughts are with Kenny's family and friends at this time.
Kenny Baker brought one of cinema's most loveable heroes to life, and for that we should all be grateful.
Rest in peace Kenny Baker, you will be missed....
