"…Harrison Ford got rid of me…in a very direct way. He said, 'Get rid of this guy. He's useless.' Or words to that effect."
―Kit Hillier[src]

Kit Hillier is a British actor who appeared as a Rebel soldier Echo Base extra in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. Hillier was originally slated to play Han Solo's tauntaun handler, but actor Harrison Ford, who played Solo, sadly removed Hillier from the role during filming rehearsal after Hillier proved inept at holding onto the mechanical tauntaun's reins. Hillier was then replaced by actor Richard Bonehill.[1][2]
