In a heartfelt statement, his agent expressed sorrow over Culver’s passing: “We are very sad to confirm the passing of our friend and client Michael Culver. With a career that spanned over 50 years, he had notable roles in Sherlock Holmes, A Passage to India, Secret Army, and one of the most unforgettable death scenes in the Star Wars saga.”

In the early 2000s, Culver shifted his focus from acting to dedicate himself to political activism. “Representing Michael for the last decade has been an honor, and bringing him to some of the premier Star Wars events across the UK and Europe was a joy,” the statement continued.

One of the standout moments was accompanying Culver to the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago in 2019, where he was overwhelmed by the nearly 200 fans eager to meet him.

The statement also mentioned, “We worked with Michael just three weeks ago at his last home signing with our friends at Elite Signatures. Michael passed away on Tuesday, 27th February, at the age of 85. He will be deeply missed.”
