Maureen Bulloch Wiki – Maureen Bulloch Biography

Maureen Bulloch is the wife of the legendary Star Wars actor Jeremy Bulloch. Maureen lived with Jeremy in their family home in Tooting for more than fifty years. They also spent over 20 years traveling the world together, visiting fans of his character Boba Fett. She has tweeted images of her and their grandchildren helping Jeremy sign autographs for fans.

When announcing he was retiring from Star Wars conventions, Jeremy wrote on behalf of both himself and his wife: “It has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to inspire so many generations of Star Wars fans.

He was an English actor best known for the role of the bounty hunter Boba Fett in the original Star Wars trilogy. He appeared in numerous British television and film productions, including Doctor Who and Robin of Sherwood.

Bulloch was born in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, England, one of six children. From the age of five, he enjoyed acting and singing after a school show. He began acting at the age of ten and “appeared in Disney films, British sitcoms and plays”. He trained at Corona Stage Academy.

At the age of twelve, Bulloch’s first professional appearance was in a breakfast cereal commercial. After several uncredited screen appearances, Bulloch’s first regular role was in the 1960 TV series Counter-Attack! and (the same year) The Chequered Flag. He went on to have a recurring role in Billy Bunter of Greyfriars School (1961) and a regular role in The Newcomers (1965–67). At the age of seventeen, he portrayed Hamlet on stage. In 1962, he starred alongside Cliff Richard in the musical film Summer Holiday.

He had a part in The Devil’s Agent, which also starred Christopher Lee who later portrayed Count Dooku in the Prequel Trilogy. He also appeared in two Doctor Who stories, The Space Museum (1965) and The Time Warrior (1973). Coincidentally, David Prowse and John Hollis, who both would later appear alongside Bulloch in The Empire Strikes Back, also appeared in a Jon Pertwee Doctor Who serial.

From 1979 to 1981, he was a regular in the ITV sitcom Agony, in which he played Rob Illingworth, one half of a gay couple. He also had minor roles in three James Bond films, twice playing Smithers, an assistant to Q.

In a career spanning over half a century, Bulloch is best known for his role in Boba Fett’s costume in the Star Wars films The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi – despite the character’s “minimal screen time.” The voice was provided by Jason Wingreen originally and in the updated versions Temuera Morrison – to strengthen the connection with the Prequel Trilogy.

His half brother Robert Watts, who was working as an associate producer for Empire was tasked with finding someone who “would fit in the costume of Boba Fett.” So Watts called Bulloch (who at the time was working on Agony) and encouraged him to see Tiny Nicholls, the wardrobe supervisor, and Bulloch had a costume fitting as Boba Fett, which “took 20 minutes to put on.”
