Make Up Artist Who Created Obi-Wan Kenobi and Other Icons Dies at 98

Thursday, February 07, 2013

Stuart Freeborn, the make up artist and visual creator of movie characters such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, died yesterday. He was 98. Freeborn turned actor Ron Moody into the street thief Fagin for the Musical Oliver, and he also captured movie-goer imaginations back in 1948 when he made Sir Alec Guinness into Fagin in David Lean's Oliver Twist.
