“Christopher Reeve?!?
Are you bloody kidding me?!?
I’ve got chunks of guys like him in my stool!
I demand a recount!”

David Prowse
Actor, bodybuilder, Sith lord.
July 1, 1935 – November 28, 2020.
Aged 85 years.

Most recognized for: Whenever Darth Vader appeared in the first 3 Star Wars films, you heard James Earl Jones but saw David Prowse… with the exception of certain heavily-choreographed lightsaber battles and when Luke pulled the helmet off in “Jedi.” He also appeared in “A Clockwork Orange” and auditioned for “Superman”… but was instead given the job of training the lanky, would-be Man of Steel.
