|Died||21 November 1997
Jack Purvis (13 July 1937 – 21 November 1997) was a British film actor. Purvis was a dwarf, and thus was mainly cast in roles requiring actors of short stature. Purvis appeared as a different alien creature in each of the three films of the original Star Wars trilogy (including Teebo in Return of the Jedi), and also appeared in three of director Terry Gilliam's early fantasy movies: Time Bandits, Brazil and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.
Several years before his death, Purvis became quadriplegic after breaking his neck in a car accident. He died in November 1997 at the age of 60.
