  • Décès de Dave Prowse qui jouait Dark Vador dans la Trilogie Originale

En effet Dave Prowse, l'acteur qui a donné vie à Dark Vador en enfilant la mythique armure noire dans la trilogie originale de Star Wars est décédé à l'âge de 85 ans. L'agence Bowington Management qui représentait le comédien britannique a annoncé son décès sur Twitter dimanche 29 novembre.

"C'est avec grande tristesse que nous devons nous annoncer que notre client Dave Prowse est mort hier matin (samedi) à l'âge de 85 ans", a écrit son agent sur Facebook.

Avant Star Wars, il a ainsi tourné pour la télévision, apparaissant dans des séries et téléfilms comme Cosmos 1999 (en 1976) ou La Petite maison dans la prairie (1975).

Cet acteur a eu un parcours pour le moins atypique: avant de jouer Dark Vador dans les trois premiers films de la saga Star Wars, il a commencé sa carrière dans la culturisme de 1962 à 1964, devenant l'année suivante champion du monde d'haltérophilie poids lourd.

'Saved by the Bell': Selena Gomez Kidney Joke Controversy

Avant de tenir l'affiche dans La guerre des étoiles, il a interprété le serviteur de Mr F. Alexander dans Orange Mécanique de Stanley Kubrick.

Comme le fort accent de ce comédien originaire de Bristol avait été jugé peu approprié, la voix du personnage avait été incarnée par l'Américain James Earl Jones - ensuite devenu la voix de Mufasa dans Le Roi Lion et du jingle "This is CNN".

Mais le choix d'une doublure voix n'est pas au goût de David Prowse, qui se fâche avec la production Lucasfilm et George Lucas, et devient persona non grata en 2010 dans les rassemblements officiels de Star Wars. Ce n'est même pas son visage qui est apparu à la mort du personnage dans Le Retour du Jedi, George Lucas lui ayant alors préféré l'acteur Sebastian Shaw. Cette déconvenue ne l'empêche pas de rester l'une des icônes de la saga, adulée par des millions de fans.
