Hey everyone, it's Brandon. It was announced yesterday that Gerald Home, who portrayed Tessek ("Squid Head") and a Mon Calamari Officer in Return of the Jedi, passed away.
I am very lucky to have gotten to know Gerald ... interviewed him three times, gone to dinner with him, emailed back and forth for years, and played Cards Against Humanity late into the night.
He was a good man and an incredible part of the Star Wars community. And he is intrinsic to this show, always recommending his friends and being such a supporter. He called this "the best interview he had ever done" and it might have been because I heavily edited it, but I am grateful for it and for him.
Rest in peace.
