Lord of the Rings Dialect Coach, Star Wars Actor Andrew Jack Dies of Coronavirus Complications at 76

Andrew Jack, the dialect coach for the Lord of The Rings films, has died at age 76 from complications of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), according to multiple reports. TMZ was the first outlet to report on his death on Tuesday.

The Star Wars actor’s rep, Jill McCullough, said in a statement to Evening Standard that he died Tuesday morning at a hospital outside of London as a result of complications he’d developed from the deadly respiratory illness.

Jack’s wife Gabrielle Rogers was unable to be with him in England due to being quarantined in Australia, McCullough said.

“Andrew lived on one the oldest working houseboats on the Thames, he was fiercely independent but madly in love with his wife; also a dialect coach: Gabrielle Rogers,” said McCullough. “Tragically she is stuck in quarantine in Australia having just flown in from NZ last week. She was unable to see or talk to him at the end of his life and there is a chance a funeral may not be held.”
