Legendary actor, David Prowse, has passed away at age 85.
Best known for his role as the body actor for Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, Prowse is considered a legend in the industry. Actor James Earl Jones was the voice behind Vader and Prowse was the man behind the mask. Due to his looming physique and bodybuilding background, Prowse was the perfect person to physically portray the character.
While this is the role he was best known for, the actor was in many other accredited films and shows.
You may recognize David Prowse from the infamous film, A Clockwork Orange, where he played Julian. This role was fitting, as it had him serving as Frank Alexander’s bodyguard. This is also the role that first had him noticed by George Lucas.
The actor may be notoriously well-known for his strong physique, but people who knew him say he was extremely kind-hearted. He will certainly be missed.
