The original Darth Vader has prostate cancer


I thought this could be one to watch (and to be obit-worthy).

I.m Sorry, was a little bit to quick to respond.
I should have read the article and known that he he is getting better.

I find your lack of faith disturbing...

Prostate cancer is never a surefire bet anyway. It can take years to fully kick in :)

Vote Vader

"Dave Prowse MBE is a true Bristolian! From "Darth Vader" to the "Green Cross Code Man" you cannot deny that his film and television achievements and his devotion to charity work should be recognised by his home city of Bristol. Morecambe has Eric Morecambe, Leicester Square has Charley Chaplin. Bristol should have Dave as VADER!"

Seems like one of the only bad picks to me.Apparently doesn`t have dementia an his prostate cancer has been in remission for years.Having said that he has serious arthritis and giants tend not to live to great ages.Also he announced recently he wasn`t travelling abroad for conventions anymore.Maybe the committee know more about that.

Yes, agree, the worst new pick. I guess the committee doesn't want to miss the next Star Wars death.

I disagree I think he is a good pick he has had so much brushes with death and is too frail to attend conventions.
