Peter Wilton Cushing, OBE was an English actor, known for his many appearances in Hammer Films, in which he played the distinguished-looking but sinister scientist Baron Frankenstein and the vampire hunter Professor Van Helsing, amongst many other roles, often appearing opposite Christopher Lee, and occasionally Vincent Price. Although he didn't have a Disney role, he played Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

In Rogue One, a CGI recreation of his likeness was used to "reprise" Tarkin, with Guy Henry physically playing Tarkin on set.
