So sad to hear of the passing of a fellow Return Of The Jedi performer Debbie Lee Carrington 

She was an advocate for actors with disabilities and had a degree in child psychology.
She had done so much, not only as an Ewok but was inside the costume for Howard The Duck, appeared in Total Recall, Grace & Frankie, Dexter, Captain Eo, the list goes on…

Way too young. She was a real powerhouse! My condolences to all her family and friends at this time.
