Sad news today. Chewbacca is dead. He had become a world famous actor without ever showing his face on the screen: The British actor Peter Mayhew, who has long donned the costume of Chewbacca, giant hairy alien of the Star Wars saga, died on Tuesday at the age of 74.
Many street artists have painted the iconic Chewbacca character over the years.
RIP Peter Mayhew aka Chewie
