The Good News: Chewbacca Actor Sends Sympathy Note to 7-Year-Old [PHOTO]
"It's important to remember the fun you had with Sam. Best friends are never really gone, they live on forever in our hearts and memories."
Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars franchise, heard about a little boy who was upset over the death of his friend Sam, and how he wouldn't be able to go see the new movie with him.
According to a GoFundMe page, Sam Miller was killed last month in an ATV accident. Liam's mom decided to try and contact Mayhew in an effort to cheer him up. Turns out, her best friend's sister is married to Mayhew...and he did, indeed, write a letter to the little boy, saying, "I hope my words were of some comfort to him."
