After Collapsing Outside a Train Station, ‘Star Wars’ Actor Paul Grant Dies

Paul Grant, who was in Star Wars and did stunts, has died. He was 56 years old. He was found by police outside London’s King’s Cross station and taken to the hospital just a few days ago.

The Sun was told by Grant’s family that he had passed out outside the train station on March 16. He was later declared brain dead. The star, who played an Ewok in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi with Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, died on March 19. His family said they decided to turn off his life support on that day. A reason for death has not been given yet.

Grant, who is 4-foot-4, has already been in a number of movies, such as Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Labyrinth with David Bowie. He was born with a rare genetic form of dwarfism called spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita, which is said to cause a lot of health problems. He called himself “the king of the Dwarves” a lot.

Sophie Jayne Grant, Grant’s daughter, said that her father was “a legend in so many ways.”

“I’m heartbroken … No girl should have her dad taken away… He was so famous and loved for what he did. She told Sky News, “He died too soon.”

Grant’s girlfriend, Maria Dwyer, also said nice things about him to The Sun. “Paul was the love of my life,” she said. The most funny person I know. He filled out my life. Without him, life will never be the same.”
