Sad news arrives as Star Wars stuntman Frank Henson has passed away aged 83. Henson, a Lucasfilm veteran through his work on Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Willow, enjoyed a career that spanned almost fifty years, starting as a stunt driver in 1969 on Monte Carlo or Bust, directed by Ken Annakin and ending as a stunt co-ordinator on 2018’s Tomb Raider reboot.

The news of his passing was announced on the Behind The Stunts Twitter page.

We had the good fortune of meeting Frank a few years ago at London Film and Comic Con, and a true gentleman he was. Our condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
