Kenny Baker, who played R2D2 in Star Wars, dead at 81 - Arts & Entertainment - CBC News

Kenny Baker, the man who brought R2D2 to life in six Star Wars films, has died. His official website puts his age at 81.
The British actor, who stood three feet eight inches tall, had been battling a long illness, according to The Guardian, who spoke with Baker's niece, Abigail Shield.
Shield said Baker had "problems with his lungs and was often in a wheelchair."

Now we know why R2D2 was sleeping in SW7.

The man, the legend.
Rest in peace.
