Sergeant Jad Bean was a Human male Death Star trooper who served inside the control room of the second Death Star during the Battle of Endor. Prior to that, he was on duty during the Dark Lord Darth Vader's arrival aboard the battlestation, and was later ordered to inform the battlestation's commander, Moff Tiaan Jerjerrod about Vader's arrival aboard the station.


Sergeant Jad Bean wore the standard uniform for Imperial Navy troopers.

Behind the scenesEdit

Jad Bean was played by Stuart Fox, whose role was uncredited in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

Although he appeared in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, the character had not been given an identity until the release of the Death Star Owner's Technical Manual, where he was named after fan Jad Bean who is the founder of the StarWars Micromachines page on Facebook.[1] The photo used to represent him in the manual, however, was used from a deleted scene from Return of the Jedi.

Sergeant Jad Bean is visible in the film, in the first scene. He is the Death Star trooper who says, "The security deflector shield will be deactivated when we have confirmation of your code transmission. Stand by...".
