Peter Mayhew, the actor who plays Chewbacca in Star Wars, sent a heart-warming condolence letter to a young fan after his seven-year-old friend passed away. Liam, the recipient of the letter, had planned to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens with his friend Sam. Sam recently passed away, and his father posted the letter on Imgur and Reddit.



I am sorry to hear that you won’t be able to see the new Star Wars movie with your friend Sam. I know that sometimes things happen and we can’t figure out why and all we feel is sadness. It’s important to remember the fun you had with Sam. Best friends are never really gone, they live on forever in our hearts and memories. I know that you are going to love Star Wars: The Force Awakens and I bet you make some new friends that also love Star Wars. I wish you the very best, and May The Force Be With You!

Cheers, Peter ‘Chewbacca’ Mayhew
