British actor Michael Culver, known for his role as Captain Needa in The Empire Strikes Back, has died at age 85.

Culver had a long career spanning decades across stage, television and film both in Britain and Hollywood.

“We are very sad to confirm the passing of our friend and client Michael Culver,” his agency, Alliance Agents, said.

Though his Star Wars role was brief, it left a lasting impression with fans as his character played a pivotal part in the plot.

Culver appeared in many British TV shows like The Avengers, Doctor Who and Midsomer Murders and in films such as The Spy Who Loved Me and A Passage to India.

On stage he took on classic and contemporary roles, demonstrating his versatility as a performer.

Culver’s agent said representing him over the past decade, including a Chicago Star Wars convention in 2019 where fans lined up to see him, was an honor.

“It’s been an honour to have represented Michael for the last decade and to have taken him to some of the best Star Wars events in the UK and Europe,” the agency stated. “A real highlight was taking Michael to Celebration in Chicago in 2019. He was lost for words when he saw his queue line with nearly 200 people waiting to see him.

“We worked with Michael just three weeks ago at his last home signing with our friends at Elite Signatures.”

His career highlighted his range, dedication and impact on entertainment.
