I'm surprised he lasted as long as he did with all the abuse he put his body through

Dave Prowse, Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy has died at the age of 85, he was the man in the costume, but the voice was James Earl Jones.

For UK members he was the Grren Cross Code man as well.

This was before the Bristol accent was deemed acceptable....... or even recognised

But then, maybe it was just too early for "Thee doesn't know the power of the dark side, my cocker! ..."

There is a great documentary/ movie on Netflix called "I am your Father" which tells the story of his acting career and his days in Star Wars and how badly he was treated by George Lucas.
It is very interesting. He comes across as a great guy.
A sad loss

Apparently he used to go to the same youth club as my father back in the day.

Now seems he was yet another victim of COVID....... or maybe the dark side in his case.
