He died in hospital on Thursday from health complications after living with Parkinson's disease for many years, his agent said.

"He had a long and happy career spanning more than 45 years," a statement said.

"He was devoted to his wife, three sons, and 10 grandchildren and they will miss him terribly."

Bulloch was best known for playing fan favourite bounty hunter Boba Fett in the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and also appeared in the BBC TV series Doctor Who.

Daniel Logan, who took over from Bulloch to play the role of Boba Fett in the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, paid tribute to the actor on Instagram.

"RIP Legend I'll never forget all you've taught me. I'll love you forever," he wrote.

"Conventions won't be the same without you. May the force be with you always."
