It was posted on the front page of Rebelscum that Alethea McGrath aka Jocasta Nu from AOTC has passed on. Alethea was 96 years old.


"It's with sadness that we report the passing of another Star Wars celebrity. Alethea McGrath, the actress who portrayed Jocasta Nu in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones has become one with the Force. Our deepest condolences to her niece who was kind enough to let us know, to her family and to her friends. She was 96 years old."

It's always sad to hear about a Star Wars actor no matter how big or small their role was passing on.

Amazing. She had quite a career in Australian television from the mid 80s. A Country Practice, Neighbours, Blue Heelers and a host of Hollywood feature film roles. Alethea must have been in her 60s when she got into TV after a career as a drama teacher. Just goes to show, it's never too late, until you are actually "late" I guess. Growing old gracefully is a life goal in itself and she certainly did a decent job of that. Sad to see the slow procession of elderly Star Wars players passing with age, although at 96, it's more of an acheivement. One of my favourite action figures is an elderly woman. God Bless her.
