Alfie “Dr Evazan” Curtis passes away aged 87 years old

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that actor Alfie Curtis has passed away at the age of 87 years old.

Curtis was most famous for his role as Dr Evazan in Star Wars: A New Hope in the famous bar scene with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). His “he doesn’t like you” speech is still quoted today. He also appeared in The Elephant Man, The Wildcats of St. Trinians, Grange Hill, Tucker’s Luck, The Gentle Touch, Q.E.D. and The Bill.

Hamill noted that “Alfie Curtis made the Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina scene – one of the most memorable I’ve ever been a part of – even more memorable. As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was funny, kind and a real gentleman. Thanks Alf – you’ll be missed.”
