It's one of the most infamous background scenes in A New Hope - when a stormtrooper inadvertently bumps his head in the background of a somber scene on the Death Star. That stormtrooper - played by Michael Leader - passed away. Apparently he was also in EastEnders, as well as small roles in Red Dwarf, Doctor Who and Blakes 7.
