    Phil Brown, best known for his role as Uncle Owen in Star Wars: A New Hope, passed away today at the age of 89.

    I knew something was up when it was announced last year that he stopped accepting autograph requests. :(

    Sorry to hear he passed. I thought he did a great job portraying Owen. He will be missed.

    I'm also surprised to learn that he was born in Cambridge. :eek:

    I read this in the yahoo group I am in. I was shocked by this to say the least. It seems that a few of the OT actors are slowing fading into the Force in recent years.

    Very sad to hear about Phil Brown passing.

    I saw him at Celebration II in 2002.

    R.I.P. Phil "Uncle Owen" Brown.
