Darth Vader actor dies

The Actor that played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars movies, Dave Prowse, has died.

He was 85 years old.

Prowse was a former bodybuilder who had a series of roles as monsters and villains. He was invited by George Lucas to audition for the roles of Vader and Chewbacca. He chose Vader.

Born in Bristol in 1935, Prowse developed a passion for bodybuilding and weight training. He competed in Mr Universe competitions, where he became friends with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

He won the British heavyweight weightlifting championship three times and was selected to represent England at the 1962 Commonwealth Games in Perth, Australia.

Prowse was in the Vader suit for much of the Sith Lord’s screen time and reputedly even got to speak his lines on set. However, a different voice was used in the final movie.
