Malcolm Tierney: 1938 - 2014

By: Benjamin Hart

I'm afraid we have some more sad news. We have lost another member of the Star Wars family. Malcolm Tierney, best know as us as Shann Childsen in A New Hope, passed away on Tuesday, February 18th at the age of 75. Tierney's character is famous for being the Imperial officer that utters the now infamous line, "Where are you taking this... thing?" upon seeing Luke, Han and their "prisoner" Chewbacca enter the cell block. Tierney had very successful acting career beyond Star Wars with roles in in such films as Braveheart and television series such as Doctor Who.

Our most sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of Malcolm Tierney. His contributions to the Star Wars saga and beyond will be cherished forever.
