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.
