(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com)- Legendary Star Wars actress Trisha Noble, who played Jobal Naberrie in the hugely popular sci-fi movie franchise, has passed away. The Daily Mail revealed the sad news that she died at the age of 76 on January 23, just days before she was due to turn 77.
Noble reportedly died as a result of complications from a tumor that developed after being exposed to asbestos.
Nobile, whose was born Patricia Ann Ruth Noble, was an Australian star who made her name as a television actress on the Aussie show “Bandstand,” before becoming a pop singer and performing under the name “Patsy Ann Noble” in the 1960s. She won the Best Female Singer of the Year at Australia’s Logie Awards, before moving to the United Kingdom where she signed a contract with Columbia Records.
She moved to the United States in 1967, changing her name to Trisha Noble and going on to work on shows like Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Rockford Files, and even Columbo.
While Noble has a huge following in the United States, her work in the United Kingdom means she’s just as legendary across the Atlantic.
Noble was set to appear in the British comedy series “Carry On,” which to this day has a cult following. However, scenes featuring Noble in the “Carry On Camping” series never made it to air. Footage no longer exists of the scenes, but the script remains and was published in a book titled “The Lost Carry Ons.”
