James Earl Jones obviously has a great voice, but they should have kept the original.

I met him about 5 years ago and it was really disappointing he was at a convention was miserable was talking to people paying for his autograph like garbage and just seemed to really not want to be there, made me think of that old saying never meet your heroes

I saw him signing photos in the Brighton shopping centre a few years back, can't remember how he came across to be honest. RIP

I don't think we should be celebrating the life of someone who blew up an entire planet and tried to murder his own son.

Imprisoned and tortured his daughter and future son in law as well plus kept changing the rules to deals and being rough on the only dark skinned guy in the galaxy.

David Prowse's accent emanating from Darth Vader does stand out as peculiarly ill-fit! :lol: But his contribution was significant too, by speaking the lines it meant the actors in scenes with him could directly respond and better act. His significant size added to Vader's imposing presence but he physically acted the role well too. I remember the first time I saw Return of the Jedi in his final battle scene, there's a part where he goes quiet and he's looking back and forth at Luke and the Emperor, no words said but I could see Vader was struggling! But Prowse's physique and James Earl Jones' voice - that's 100% lightning in a bottle.

He seemed like a good guy and engaged with the fans for years. Not everybody will remember the Green Cross Code man a uniquely British superhero! It was a big health and safety campaign that became ingrained in the psyche. I popped out this morning and came to a crossing for a fairly busy road and you know what I said to myself? Stop, look and listen.
RIP.

Seriously, I wonder how many people in their 40s aren't dead because of the green cross code man.

I'm continually floored that an actor portrayed two different characters. What a strange thing to say.

Playing a different antagonist in two films from the same franchise almost 40 years apart is pretty impressive tbh. I had no idea he did till I read that.

In The Sopranos the character who played Vito originally was an extra in an early series ep before becoming one of the actors in the later series
