British actor and dialect coach, Andrew Jack, has passed away at 76 after contracting coronavirus.
He reportedly died in a hospital in Surrey on Tuesday from Covid-19 complications, according to his agent, Jill McCullough.
McCullough hinted that: “Andrew lived on one of the oldest working houseboats on the Thames, he was fiercely independent but madly in love with his wife, also a dialect coach”.
Gabrielle Rogers, his wife, who is currently in self-isolation in Australia, disclosed that Jack’s death came two days after he was diagnosed with the lethal communicable disease.
“We lost a man today. Andrew Jack was diagnosed with Coronavirus 2 days ago. He was in no pain, and he slipped away peacefully knowing that his family were all ‘with’ him. Take care out there, lovers,” Rogers said on Twitter.
Greg Grunberg, fellow ‘Star Wars’, mourns him in his tweet: “Devastated to hear of the passing of the wonderful, talented, beloved gentleman #AndrewJack. He is one of the kindest people I’ve ever worked with. Please stay safe. Please stay home!!!
