Top make-up artist Stuart Freeborn dead at 98

From WENN.com

The Brit became one of the most in-demand off-camera experts in his field thanks to his work on 2001: A Space Odyssey, Dr. Strangelove and the Star Wars films.

He helped create Yoda's look for The Empire Strikes Back and Guinness' Fagin in director David Lean's Oliver Twist.

Largely self-taught, Freeborn honed his craft as an assistant to filmmaker Alexander Korda in the 1930s, when he found himself working with silver screen icons like Marlene Dietrich and Vivien Leigh.

He also created three looks for movie star Sellers in Dr. Strangelove.

Freeborn's son Graham is also a make-up artist.
