‘I Loved Him.’ Harrison Ford Bids Farewell to Star Wars Co-Star Peter Mayhew

Hollywood actor Harrison Ford gave a heartfelt statement on his Star Wars co-star Peter Mayhew’s death on Thursday.

Peter Mayhew was a kind and gentle man, possessed of great dignity and noble character,” Ford said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 7-foot-3 actor played Chewbacca, the loyal sidekick to Han Solo, who was played by Ford. The famous Wookiee, who starred in five Star Wars films, including the original trilogy, died at his Texas home on Tuesday at the age of 74.

Ford said the duo’s unique bond extended beyond the silver screen.

“We were partners in film and friends in life for over 30 years and I loved him. He invested his soul in the character and brought great pleasure to the Star Wars audience,” Ford said about his co-star, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Chanel Plans Farewell Ceremony for Karl Lagerfeld

REMEMBERING KARL: Chanel is planning a farewell ceremony for Karl Lagerfeld following the designer’s death on Tuesday at the age of 85.
In a death notice in French daily newspaper Le Figaro on Thursday, the fashion house said Lagerfeld would be laid to rest “in a strictly private ceremony,” confirming what a spokeswoman for the Lagerfeld brand told WWD.
“A farewell ceremony will take place at a later date,” Chanel added. A spokeswoman for the brand said no additional details were available at this time. Lagerfeld’s final collection for Chanel will be shown in Paris on March 5, in what promises to be a highly emotional occasion.
The couturier always made clear that he did not want a public funeral after his own death, telling Numéro magazine in an interview last year that he preferred for his ashes to be scattered near those of his mother Elisabeth and those of his cat Choupette, should she pass away before him.
