Legendary ‘Star Wars’ makeup artist Stuart Freeborn dies at 98
Stuart Freeborn, the pioneering makeup artist behind Yoda, Chewbacca, Jabba the Hutt, and the Ewoks, has died at the age of 98, reports the BBC. George Lucas said that the self-taught Freeborn was “already a makeup legend when he started on Star Wars,” a fact borne out by his work on the “Dawn of Man” sequence in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and the three different faces he created for Peter Sellers in Dr. Strangelove.
