another performer gone

Sorry to see this guy go. He was the dwarf "performer" inside R2-D2, as you will see in the news stories about him.

For me, a better remembrance in his roles (and in his face) is that of a kindly dwarf in "The Elephant Man", who said something like "we'll get you out of here" as he released the unfortunate Mr. Merrick from a carnival cage.
