RIP Darth Vader!


We all know the voice of James Earl Jones as the intimidating Darth Vader from the Star Wars universe (and of course those CNN promos), but we can't forget David Prowse, who played the actual person (in the giant suit).

Prowse, who was a British actor and body builder, passed away this past weekend at age 85.

The official Star Wars Twitter said on Sunday, "Lucasfilm was saddened to learn of the passing of David Prowse, who provided the commanding presence and imposing physical performance of Darth Vader for the Original Trilogy. He will be long remembered..."

RIP Darth Vader!
