Erik Bauersfield, voice actor and radio dramatist, passed at his home in Berkeley California, aged 93. He is best known for playing the voice roles of Admiral Akbar…

The thoughts and well wishes of the To Watch Pile are with his family, and surely the universe has gone silent.

Rest In Peace, Mr Bauersfield. Everytime I shout ‘It’s a trap’ it will from now on, be tainted with a touch of sadness and respect.
