Phil Brown, Uncle Owen on 'Star Wars,' Dies
After starring in movies and TV shows in the 1940s, Brown moved to London in the 1950s after he was wrongly blacklisted during the Communist scares in the United States. Star Wars director George Lucas cast Brown while filming scenes for the 1977 sci-fi epic in London, and his fame playing Uncle Owen in the movie lead to his return to America.
Brown is survived by widow Ginny, their son Kevin, two grandchildren and a great-grandchild.
