Admiral Ackbar voice actor Erik Bauersfeld dies at 93


"It's a trap" is one of the most memorable lines from the Star Wars movies and sadly, the voice actor who provided those lines has died at the age of 93.

Erik Bauersfeld provided the voice for Admiral Ackbar in 1983's Return of the Jedi and his one line would later spawn a whole range of merchandising and become a popular internet meme.

Bauersfeld died on Sunday at his home in California, his manager told the Associated Press.
Bauersfeld mainly worked in radio before his Star Wars roles.

He also provided the voice for Jabba the Hutt's ghostly steward Bib Fortuna in Return of the Jedi.
Admiral Ackbar and Bauersfeld returned for a cameo role in last year's Star Wars sequel The Force Awakens.
