Very few knew his face, but he still had many fans: British actor David Prouse has passed away. He was best known for his role as Darth Vader in Star Wars.
David Pruce died at the age of 85. British media reported citing his agent Thomas Boington. Pross died after a brief illness – “a loss to millions of fans all over the world”.
May the Force be with him forever!
Pruve played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars Triology. His stature, about two meters long, is said to have given him his role. Prowess donated black armor and helmet three times: in 1977 for “Star Wars”, in 1980 for “The Empire Strikes Back” and in 1983 “The Return of the Jedi Nights”.
The Darth Wader actor died at the age of 85
By the way, the actor cannot be heard in films. Because: Pruv was also dubbed in the original English version. Director George Lucas absolutely wanted a deeper voice for the role and Lucas found in the West English dialect that Prowse had spoken inappropriately – which is why James Earl Jones dubbed the character of Darth Vader.
Darth Vader is in the dark side of power in the famous film series and rivals the protagonist Luke Skywalker. In the fight scenes, Prowse was replaced by fencer Bob Anderson, who died in 2012 at the age of 89.
The Darth Wader actor felt a little regret that he was never really known as a person. Due to the facade, he could walk through the public in “complete oblivion”. In an interview with AP News Agency in 1980, he said, “All artists have long been recognized for recognition and I would prefer Luke Skywalker or Han Solo.”
Pruce was also a fitness trainer
Siddha was not just an actor. During his active time as a bodybuilder, he also struck up a friendship with Arnold Schwarzenegger. In 1978 he also produced Christopher Reeve as a fitness trainer for his part in Superman.
Colleagues and fans mourn David Prouse
Actor Mark Hamill, better known as Luke Skywalker, paid tribute to Prowe. He was a loving person and “much more than Darth Vader,” he tweeted. He loved his fans as much as he loved her.
British “Ant-Man” director Edgar Wright also said goodbye to Proves via Twitter. “When I was a kid, Dave Pruve couldn’t have been more famous to me; He stepped into the corridors as Darth Wader’s evil personality and as a Green Cross Code man, he prevented a whole generation of children from running on the street, ”he wrote. Pruce starred in road safety commercials in the UK as a superhero of sorts.
But not only the acting world mourns the Star Wars star. Fans also say goodbye to their hero:
