David Prowse, MBE (born 1 July 1935) is an English bodybuilder, weightlifter and actor, most widely known for playing the role of Darth Vader (though James Earl Jones voiced the character). In Britain, he is also remembered as having played the Green Cross Code man. Prowse is a native of Bristol, where he attended Bristol Grammar School.
Prowse is best known for playing the physical form of Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy. James Earl Jones, however, provided the voice for the character. Prowse spoke the dialogue during the making of the films, and did not actually know Vader was Luke's father until he saw The Empire Strikes Back in the cinema (which he considers to be his favourite of the trilogy).Although he was never going to be used as the voice of Darth Vader, Prowse claims he was originally told that he would be seen and heard at the end of Return of the Jedi when Vader's mask was removed. Instead, actor Sebastian Shaw was used. Lucas claims he wanted a 'darker voice' -- that is, a deeper, more reverberating voice—and never intended to use Prowse's voice, which had a West Country accent. In the 2004 documentary Empire of Dreams, actress Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia Organa in the original trilogy films, quipped that they nicknamed Prowse "Darth Farmer" because of his un-intimidating West Country accent. In the lightsaber battle scenes between Vader and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Prowse, who was not a skilled swordsman, was doubled by the scene's fight-choreographer, the stuntman and fencing coach Bob Anderson (who also taught the sword fighters in The Princess Bride and Lord of the Rings).
