London – David Prowse, known to most people as Darth Vader from the “Star Wars” series, died on Saturday (November 28th) at the age of 85.
This was announced by his agent Thomas Bowington on “Facebook”. He wrote there: “May the force always be with him!” Accordingly, Prowse died after a short illness. Due to his imposing height of 1.98 meters, the actor was selected for the role of the knight of sinister power. However, since he had a strong West English dialect, his role was spoken by his US colleague James Earl Jones. His face also never appeared in the “Star Wars” series: In the final scene, in which the dark lord’s mask was removed, the face of actor Sebastian Shaw was used instead.
