"Dave Prowse, the Bristolian former bodybuilder best known for playing Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, has died aged 85."


Rest well David. You made an imposing figure within the black suit that left an everlasting impression on me from my childhood and onwards.

The original trilogy cast are dwindling, sadly, but such is life.

Life still goes on in the after life... Perhaps he and the princess are reminiscing. Who knows...

Sad he is gone but it was Sebastian Shaw who was the force ghost Anakin at the end of Jedi, he passed away years ago.

David Prowse was “the man in the suit”.

That was how I remembered Dave Prowse, the Green Cross Code Man. It was also the part he was most proud of!
He was Christopher Reeves trainer for Superman too.
May he rest in piece.

RIP to a fellow Bristolian.

He had such a strong Bristolian accent, Star Wars would have been even more fun if they had used his voice. Apparently Carrie Fisher called him Darth Farmer.

ETA - They even dubbed his voice for the Green Gross Code safety campaign.
