Was sad to hear Kenny died today Sad  Famous for being the man inside R2-D2 in six of the films and Paploo the speeder bike thief in ROTJ. RIP dude.













Anyone ever meet him at conventions? I always heard he was a friendly bloke, and in the few interviews I've seen he always came across well.

edit: Taz, I had the same idea the same time as you. I'll combine our posts.

This is sad news. I never got to meet him, but he was traveling doing signings and I wanted to meet him if he ever came close to where I live.

Just terrible. I heard the news before going to work today and couldn't believe it.

R.I.P., buddy.
