Admiral Ackbar looking to the right


What Does Admiral Ackbar From Star Wars Look Like In Real Life?

The skilled military leader Admiral Ackbar, best known for his iconic line "It's a trap!," was brought to life in "Return of the Jedi" by two equally admirable actors.

Tim Rose performed the character on set, as his solid physique gave Ackbar an aura of authority. Meanwhile, actor Erik Bauersfeld provided Ackbar’s voice.

While Rose embodied Ackbar once more for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," the character's voice was handed to performer Tom Kane following the death of Bauersfeld in April 2016.

Tim Rose's puppetry career is held in high regard, as he has worked on many other films, including "The Muppet Show," but his "Star Wars" role remains his most fondly remembered.

While returning to the part for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was a dream come true for Rose, he was not pleased with Ackbar's untimely demise in "The Last Jedi."
