"He was a really sweet man, nice man, and he had a hard time physically", an emotional Ford said of the 7-foot, 2-inch tall actor.
The actor visited The Tonight Show on Thursday and discussed his fondness for Mayhew, who first appeared onscreen as Chewbacca in 1977 alongside Ford's Han Solo, and would go on to play the lovable Wookiee in multiple films throughout the fantasy series. It was really hard for him to do what he did for us, all of us, and he did it with real dignity and class. He was a really neat guy. Ford noted the quiet challenge Mayhew faced playing Chewbacca.

The star portrayed Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy as well as 2005's Revenge of the Sith and 2015's The Force Awakens. His health issues forced him to retire from the role, however, and he has since been replaced by Joonas Suotamo. He knew how important the fans of the franchise were to its continued success and he was devoted to them.
