He was responsible for assembling sets and had worked on several Hollywood blockbusters.

Mr Cupac was found in his hotel in Fes, Morocco.

He is thought to have died of natural causes.

Friends paid tribute to his infectious laugh and dry wit.

One pal said: “I’m heartbroken. Nic was such a lovely man.”

Another added: “One of the very best — taught me so much when I was starting out.”

Footage taken just before his death showed the crew rehearsing the high octane stunt ahead of Harrison Ford’s arrival.

The film, out in 2023, has had setbacks including Covid and injuries.
