Stuart Freeborn (9/5/1914 – 2/5/2013)

YODA: “When ninety-eight years old YOU reach, look as good YOU will not, hmm?”YodaIn case you didn’t know, Stuart Freeborn is the makeup artist who created some of the most iconic and magical Star Wars characters…like Yoda & Chewbacca. Stuart enjoyed an incredible career in sci-fi makeup artistry before he walked onto the Star Wars set. I refuse to be sad about this. This is a man who lived his creative dreams and inspired thousands of others…and that’s a long life well-lived. Bravo!Chewbacca
