Huh. Apparently Dave Prowse, who played (the body of) Darth Vader in all three Star Wars movies, has been having some health problems. He’s recovering from some scary operations on his spine. “Maybe the Force was with me,” he said afterwards. I met him a year and a half ago at a collector’s fair in Wembley and he seemed really nice. I’ve got an autographed picture somewhere… I should dig that out and scan it.

  1. More importantly than Vader, he was the green-cross code man for a lot of us Brits

  2. Green-cross?? Okay, that one lost me.

  3. Ooooh! Back in the day (and we’re talking *back*) he used to do PSA’s in a white and green spandex outfit with a big green cross across his chest. He taught the wee kids road safty “Look left, look right, look left again” Very camp when you look back on it 🙂

  4. Neat. You’ve exposed a flaw in my comments script though. It pukes on long pieces of text without spaces in them. I’ve turned those URLs into links for now… Time to start tinkering again!
