Peter Mayhew passes away at the age of 74

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Peter Mayhew has passed away at the age of 74 years old with his family by his side at his North Texas home on April 30th 2019.

Known for his role as Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies, Mayhew won over fans across the world. His family released a statement saying that “Peter was the man behind the mask of Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy, episode 3 of the prequels and the New Trilogy. He fought his way back from being wheelchair-bound to stand tall and portray Chewbacca once more in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He also consulted on The Last Jedi in an attempt to teach his successor. He put his heart and soul into the role of Chewbacca and it showed in every frame of the films from his knock kneed running, firing his bowcaster from the hip, his bright blue eyes, down to each subtle movement of his head and mouth…to him, the Star Wars family meant so much more to him than a role in the film.”
