Jeremy died peacefully on December 17, 2020, following health complications, including several years living with Parkinson's disease
On Thursday, December 17, 2020, Jeremy Bulloch, the actor who played the character of the bounty hunter Boba Fett in the original 'Star Wars' trilogy, died at the age of 75. He died in the hospital after living with Parkinson's disease for several years.
Bulloch’s family confirmed the news of his demise on the actor’s website. "Jeremy died peacefully on 17th December 2020 following health complications, including several years living with Parkinson's disease. He spent his final weeks in the wonderful care of the staff at St George’s Hospital in Tooting, close to the house where he and his wife Maureen had lived together for more than fifty years. Maureen and two of his sons, Jamie and Robbie, were with him during his final days."
He was a celebrated actor best known for playing the role of the bounty hunter in 'The Empire Strikes Back' and 'Return of the Jedi'. That character would then return to the Star Wars spinoff series 'The Mandalorian'. He also worked on the James Bond movie 'Octopussy' in 1983, 'Doctor Who' in the '70s and 'Robin of Sherwood' in the '80s. "He also supported a number of charities including Great Ormond Street Hospital who saved his granddaughter's life. He was devoted to his wife, three sons and ten grandchildren, who all love him dearly and will miss him terribly," the statement continued.
Although his character had little screen time on the Star Wars franchise, he left a deep mark in the hearts of his audience. According to some reports, the British actor's net worth was $1.1M, while others keep it at anywhere from $100,000 to $1M. He is survived by his wife, three sons and 10 grandchildren, and it is likely that his sons will inherit Bulloch's net worth.
