David Prowse, the towering English weightlifter and actor who performed Darth Vader within the Star Wars trilogy, is dead at 85.
Prowse was solid as Vader for his imposing physique, regardless that the position was voiced by James Earl Jones. However the weightlifter-turned-actor was most happy with enjoying the Inexperienced Cross Code Man. The position, selling highway security within the UK, earned him an MBE.
“Could the drive be with him, all the time!” stated his agent Thomas Bowington. “Although well-known for taking part in many monsters – for myself, and all who knew Dave and labored with him, he was a hero in our lives.”
