R.I.P Dave Prowse A.K.A Darth Vader

I woke up to very sad news this morning of actor David Prowse who played Darth Vader in the OT (not the voice, just the 6’6” imposing frame) passing away.

I just wanted to post something in his memory and to pass on my condolences to his family, friends and millions of fans around the world on this sad Monday.

You will be missed and May the Force Be With You.

Now he can finally reunite with Peter and Carrie in Star Wars Heaven πŸ™‚

Stay safe my friends and I’ll catch you tomorrow or in the comments!

  1. So true, we have lost another icon of our chidhood. So sad and my thoughts too go out to his immediate family, friends and the millions of fans around the galaxy.

    Today I hold my bleeding saber aloft and I am a Sith.

    1. I had never heard of that seeing as I live in New Zealand but it seems that even though Darth Vader was his most memorable and well-known role, the Green Cross Code man seems to be the most cherished πŸ™‚

      1. I think for many Brits in the late 70s and early 80s it will always be memorable. It was a huge public information campaign on TV, in print, plus public events. Good that Dave managed to play a memorable hero and a villain πŸ™‚

      2. Ah yes that makes sense. I have never heard of it being in New Zealand πŸ™‚ And yeah he has a wonderful legacy to leave the world πŸ™‚
