Jerry Harte (April 20, 1931–February 2018) was an American actor, director, and musician who appeared in the 1980 film Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. He is credited as "Head Controller" in the Rebel Forces.
The Empire Strikes Back
The Star Wars Insider 74 article Who's Who in Echo Base, written by Josh Radke, incorrectly states that Jerry Harte played Echo Base controller Romas Navander, a Star Wars Legends character, in The Empire Strikes Back. In fact, the Navander role was portrayed by actor Burnell Tucker, while Harte played another Echo Base officer who was not named in Star Wars Legends.

Notes and references
- This assertion is based on a visual comparison of actors Jerry Harte and Burnell Tucker, using pictures of both men in their respective various acting roles (see: Jerry Harte and Burnell Tucker). Comparing both actors demonstrates that Tucker played Echo Base controllers Romas Navander and Wyron Serper in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, while Harte played an unnamed Rebel officer. Therefore, the claim from the Star Wars Insider 74 article Who's Who in Echo Base that Harte played Navander is incorrect.
