R.I.P. Andrew Jack, LOTR dialect coach Can't Post

Heavy reports that Andrew Jack, who was the dialect coach for the Lord of the Rings films, has passed away at the age of 76. He passed away from complications related to the coronavirus in a hospital near London. His wife, Gabrielle Rogers, also a dialect coach, was stuck in quarantine in Australia, having just flown out of New Zealand, and was unable to be with him before his death.

Andrew Jack had been working on the new Batman movie. He was a dialect coach for the recent Star Wars movies, and also had an acting role as Resistance Major Caluan Ematt in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In addition, he was the voice of Moloch in Solo: A Star Wars Story, as well as the dialect coach for the film. Other notable credits (as dialect coach) include Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Endgame.

And so it begins [In reply to] Can't Post

That he was stricken by this virus and his wife couldn't be with him is just so so sad. He left his footprint on so many of our favourite films. Peace for his family, friends, co-works and fans. He will be missed.

Thanks for letting us know, Hasuwandil.


We have been there and back again.

Very sad news... [In reply to] Can't Post

My thoughts and prayers are with his family, of course. The saddest part of the story is probably that his loved ones couldn't be with him when he passed. It's truly heartbreaking. But I hope that now he's in a better place.
