Khan Bonfils (commonly called Kan), who played Jedi Master Saesee Tiin in “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace”, has died. The 42 year old British actor collapsed while on set working on a new film called “Dante’s Inferno” and was unable to be revived.
“Kan collapsed during a rehearsal and the director, Rocky Rodriguez Jr., he performed CPR on location,” company spokesperson Chris Hislop said. “An ambulance was called out but unfortunately he couldn’t be resuscitated.”
Hislop added: “The entire company are in shock. There is absolutely severe sadness. It is a real tragedy. I think they are holding it together by talking it through and by being there for each other.”
