Erik Bauersfeld, the talented actor who supplied the iconic voice for the renowned rebel commander Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars - Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars - Episode VII: The Force Awakens passed away Monday at 93 years old, due to natural causes.



When asked about his most famous line Bauersfeld disclosed to the San Francisco Chronicle in 2012:

"The fans who write say they'll never forget 'It's a trap!' I don't even remember how I said it. It's not that I don't like it or don't respect it. I just don't have time to be a fan and see it 10 times or 20 times."

Farewell indeed, Admiral, your voice will echo on into eternity.

While on air for a podcast with Nerdist, Rockwell said “they were going to do a sequel on Amazon. We were ready to sign up, and [then] Alan Rickman passed away and Tim Allen wasn’t available – he has a show – and everybody’s schedule was all weird. It was going to shoot, like, right now. And how do you fill that void of Alan Rickman? That’s a hard void to fill.”



A hard void to fill indeed. By Grabthar's Hammer, what a crying shame.

You've probably seen his name in the credits of the Simpsons, though he was only with the show for its first four seasons.  After making millions creating the Simpsons with Matt Groenig and James L Brooks, Simon all but retired in his thirties and spent his time fighting for animal rights and rescuing and training dogs.  

Simon passed away today after a long battle with colon cancer.  His fortune will be donated to animals in need, and his legacy will live on in our laughter.  Join us in remembering his work on the Simpsons.
