The original Darth Vader has prostate cancer

 

http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol...icle5925998.ece

 

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.

Like Peter O'Toole in 2013.

There are a good number of likely hits. David Prowse and Sandy Gall look like the sorts of picks who you might um and ah about adding in but if they go you feel but if they were left off an went you would be thinking Patrick Moore all over again.

The two on our list for this year who've we've lost so far are right next to each other by some chance (i mean, the chances of that are slim in a list of 50 people)

p.s is there a section to post our own personal deathlists (i like to make my own each year, too)

Not sure what any of this has to do with David Prowse, mind.

well in regards to David Prowse, I get mixed up, but I'm guessing he was the man in the vader suit and the guy who did the voice, is the one who died a few years back

James Earl Jones (who did the voice) is still alive...

Neither Vader is dead. Only Tarkin, Kenobi, R2, and Princess Leia died so far.

The guy who played the unmasked Vader in Return of the Jedi, Sebastien Shaw, is also dead.

Attendend Em-Con in Burton today and was signing things etc, seems a poor pick in my opinion.

He still attends UK conventions, it's just the international ones he's stopped.

My grandfather used to be a bouncer at a club and David Prowse worked there too. They called him "Darth Farmer" because of his Bristolian/western british accent.
