Kenny Baker with R2-D2

Kenny Baker (1934-2016) was an actor best known for playing R2-D2 in the first six Star Wars films. Although R2 made several Muppet related appearances, Baker did not perform the character: "On the few times that there was a Star Wars special they would use the three legged R2, like on The Muppet Show."[1]

However, Baker did work with Jim Henson, as a member of the goblin corps in Labyrinth. His other films include Time Bandits, The Elephant Man, and Amadeus.
