“Andrew lived on one of the oldest working houseboats on the Thames, he was fiercely independent but madly in love with his wife, also a dialect coach,” McCullough added.
The actor’s wife Gabrielle Rogers also shared a note about Jack on social media.
“Andrew Jack was diagnosed with coronavirus 2 days ago. He was in no pain, and he slipped away peacefully knowing that his family were all ‘with’ him,” Rogers wrote
Jack starred as Major Ematt in ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi’ and ‘Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens’. He had a voice role in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’, the ‘Star Wars’ spin-off prequel.
