On Tuesday, March 31, 2020, Andrew Jack passed away as a result of complications from the coronavirus. Now his wife can’t see him one last time because she’s in another country.


Jack, from “Star Wars,” died on Tuesday morning at the age of 76 at a hospital just outside of London. The dialect coach’s representative, Jill McCullough, confirmed the sad news.

However, McCullough revealed that his wife, Gabrielle Rogers, won’t be at his funeral because she’s all the way in Australia. Jack’s wife is currently under quarantine in the country.
