Ted Burnett (November 8, 1926[1]October 1, 2001) was a British actor who portrayed the bartender Wuher in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.[2] For his three lines of dialogue, his voice was dubbed over with that of an uncredited American actor. Burnett's own, cockney-accented reading of his first two lines - telling Luke Skywalker that his droids must wait outside the Cantina - can be heard in the rough cut Cantina sequence in the Star Wars: Behind the Magic CD-ROM, and his reading of his third and final line - pleading with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Doctor Evazan not to use blasters when the two engage in an altercation - can be heard in the first theatrical trailer for the film.
