Star Wars actor Richard LeParmentier has passed away. He was 66.
LeParmentier is best known for his role in 1977's Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, in which he played Darth Vader's cohort Admiral Conan Antonio Motti. Darth, using the "force," memorably strangled Motti, who was the Death Star commander, for disloyalty. Star Wars fans have long been fond of his short but memorable role.
