More Tributes To Kenny Baker

Statement from George Lucas:

“Kenny Baker was a real gentleman as well as an incredible trooper who always worked hard under difficult circumstances.  A talented vaudevillian who could always make everybody laugh, Kenny was truly the heart and soul of R2-D2 and will be missed by all his fans and everyone who knew him.”

    I don’t follow social media, so I don’t know if it doesn’t exist or if we’re just not including it due to some disreputable statements made in recent years but…

    There’s one absence in this list of names and condolences that is particularly conspicuous.

      Anthony Daniels did comment and it was very respectful and gentlemanly. A terrible person would gloat, and a diplomatic person would give no comment, but he gave Kenny Baker kind words. He didn’t pretend they were best friends or anything, just said he’s going to be remembered by so many fans. There are some upsetting things he said over the years but this isn’t one of those times, I feel.

      • Stefan Kraft Says:

        Do you have a link? Don’t worry, I am sure that Mr. Daniels commented, it would just be nice to complete the list of tributes.

        Anyway: the Force will be with you, Kenny. Always.
