it is with great sadness that i have heard announced on the BBC here in Scotland that the Dave Prowse the man who was Darth Vader and the Green Cross Code Man for many of us here in the UK has died at the age of 85. I had the privilege of meeting him at once and he was very down to earth and a regular guy that didn't take himself to seriously.

Thoughts and sympathies to his family.
