It’s no secret that 2020 was a rough year for many around the world. Among the many losses remembered is late actor Jeremy Bulloch, who originally played Boba Fett in the original trilogy. Fellow Star Wars and Boba Fett actor Daniel Logan took to social media recently to pay tribute to the actor one year after his death.

Logan played young Boba Fett in Attack of the Clones and knew Bulloch personally. Logan also reprised his role of young Boba in several episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. He posted a photo of the two actors on Instagram with nothing but kind words for the late icon.

“Gone but never forgotten..! Can’t believe it’s already been a year since we lost you..! Miss you my friend.”

The photo portrays the two actors standing on either side of an astromech droid decorated to resemble Boba Fett’s armor. This likely was not the only time the two actors interacted in front of or behind cameras.

Bulloch’s death is especially bittersweet this year with The Book of Boba Fett set to premiere just one week from today. The actor may have known the major impact he had on the Star Wars franchise and its fans, but he will never get to see the character he debuted in live-action come to life again on the small screen all these decades later.

It may be Temuera Morrison’s turn to bring the man behind the armor to life in ways Star Wars fans have never seen before. But Bulloch will always be remembered as the first, especially for fans who grew up watching the original movies and fell in love with Boba Fett just from the few scenes he appears in during the films.
