David Prowse , the actor who played Darth Vader passed at 85. He originally autitioned for both Darth Vader and Chewbaca and was given the choice of the two. He said people always remember the "Bad Guys" so chose DV. RIP

Got to meet him as young kid in school. He was there as green cross code character. Some traffic safety character from uk. I remember being bummed he didn’t sound like Darth Vader. We did get to ask questions and he told us all about making the movie.He was a very nice guy.Haven’t thought about that in 40 years. Rip

Probably the best kind of celebrity, no one really knows what you look like. His character is a touchstone for generations. That is a fantastic legacy.

God speed...
