Video: "Erik Bauersfeld: The Voice behind Admiral Ackbar"

By: Dominic Jones

Last week the Star Wars community was saddened to learn of the passing of one of our own, with Erik Bauersfeld passing away at the age of 93.  Erik Bauersfeld was best known to Star Wars fans for his work as Bib Fortuna in Return of the Jedi and Admiral Ackbar in Jedi and The Force Awakens.  My pal Jamie Stangroom interviewed Erik before he passed about his roles in Star Wars and his love for the fan community for his YouTube series These Are the Actors You're Looking For.  In honor of Erik, Jamie has released his interview with Erik - including Erik performing Ackbar's famous line "It's a Trap" in eight different styles.  Check it out below,
