RIP Darth Vader

David Prowse, who embodied Darth Vader in the Star Wars films, has passed away at the age of 85.

There were other aspects of Prowse's life - he was a champion weightlifter and his acting career spanned from the mid-1960's through 2016. He appeared in A Clockwork Orange, and his television appearances included The Beverly Hillbillies, The Saint, Doctor Who, Little House on the Prairie, Space: 1999, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and The Benny Hill Show

Although James Earl Jones provided Vader's deep, imposing voice, it was Prowse who gave him the imposing visual presence. Rest in peace, sir.
