Jeremy Bulloch Retires from Convention Appearances

Jeremy Bulloch, who earned pop culture immortality playing the bounty hunter Boba Fett in the original Star Wars trilogy, announced this weekend that he is retiring from the comic convention circuit.

He made the announcement via

It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to stop attending conventions and hang up the Fett helmet. It has not been an easy decision to make. In 1979 I was called onto the set of Empire Strikes Back to play Boba Fett, and since that day it has changed the entire direction of my life in such a wonderful way. It has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to inspire so many generations of Star Wars fans. I have had over 20 years of travelling with my wife Maureen to some amazing countries and have met so many wonderful fans. Thank you all so much and we will miss you all.

‘May the Force be with you always’
