Actor Mark Hamill took to his Twitter to pay tribute to Curtis, writing, "ALFIE CURTIS made the #StarWars 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 & a real gentleman. Thanks Alf- you'll be missed. #RIP ??- mh".
The news of his death came a year after his fellow 'Star Wars' legend Carrie Fisher passed away at the age of 60.
Curtis also appeared in a film 'The Elephant Man' in 1980 and TV series 'Cribb'. (ANI)
