MATTEO DALL'OMBRA

 HOME

The end of an era, a sad reporting from The Guardian:

Erik Bauersfeld, who turned three words from a minor acting role – “It’s a trap!” – into one of the most beloved lines of the Star Wars series, has died.

His manager, Derek Maki, says the performer died Sunday at his home in Berkeley, California, at the age of 93.

Bauersfeld stayed in radio for much of his life. He stumbled into the Star Wars series while working on a radio project at Lucasfilm.

Never forget.
