Kenny Baker starred in six "Star Wars" films ranging from the first movie in 1977 to "Episode III – Revenge of the Sith" in 2005.
He was born in Birmingham in the United Kingdom in 1934. According to his website , Baker became a performer when he was 16 years old and went on to star in a circus and pantomime and ice shows before he created a musical comedy act.
