We're sad to report the passing of Star Wars actor & stuntman, Felix Silla. Actor Gil Gerard broke the news today that his long-time friend of more than 40 years has passed away from pancreatic cancer.
It is with a heavy heart that I tell you all that my dear friend of over forty years, Felix Silla, is dying of pancreatic cancer. I spoke briefly with him and his family last night and they tell me that he’s going into hospice care today. Prayers .— Gil Gerard (@Gil_Gerard) April 16, 2021
Felix was 84 and known for playing the role of the Hang-Glider Ewok in Return of the Jedi in addition to working on Howard the Duck, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Spaceballs, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Addams Family and more.
Felix died just a few hours ago and the only good I can draw from his passing is that he didn’t suffer any longer. I will miss him terribly, especially the great time we had at our panels. Just him telling me to ,” go ‘ f ‘ myself”. 😢— Gil Gerard (@Gil_Gerard) April 16, 2021
