Subject: "He doesn't like you. I don't like you, either."

Alfie Curtis, notorious 'Star Wars' cantina outlaw, has died; actor fondly remembered by Mark Hamill

Alfie Curtis, the British actor who earned a place in the Star Wars pantheon for playing the menacing Mos Eisley Cantina scofflaw with the “death sentence on 12 systems,” has died, according to the BBC. He was 87. News of Curtis’s death was first reported by the fan site Elite Signatures.

The London-born Curtis had dozens of credits in British film and TV — and a bit part in David Lynch’s The Elephant Man — but the London-born actor guaranteed himself a bit of sci-fi immortality by playing Dr. Cornelius Evazan, one of the most wretched members of Tatooine’s wretched hive of scum and villainy in 1977’s original Star Wars Evazan is the disfigured cantina patron who, with partner Ponda Baba (aka “Walrus Man”), famously harasses Luke Skywalker. “He doesn’t like you,” Evazan tells Luke. “I don’t like you, either.” As the two draw their blasters,

they are sliced and diced by Obi-Wan Kenobi’s lightsaber.

Wow. No cause of death given. RIP.
