Dave Prowse Passes Away At 85

Star Wars actor Dave Prowse, who famously donned the black armor to appear as the iconic Darth Vader in the Original Trilogy, has passed away at the age of 85.

In addition to his Star Wars work, Prowse appeared in numerous horror and sci-fi films, including Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell where he starred with future co-star Peter Cushing. He also had a role as the minotaur monster in the Doctor Who story The Time Monster, making him one of the few actors to have roles in both Star Wars and Doctor Who.

We at Geekville Radio would like to extend our condolences to the Prowse family for their loss.
