Los Angeles: `Star Wars` actor Peter Mayhew underwent a double knee-replacement surgery recently.

The 69-year-old actor who played the role of Chewbacca and Harrison Ford`s sidekick in the first three `Star Wars` films, is currently recovering in a Texas hospital after undergoing the surgery, reported People Magazine.

Mayhew hopes the surgery will let him walk again.

"We have made him bigger, stronger & faster; now if we can just get him out of bed! Taking it slow and steady," his family wrote on his Twitter page.
