Darth Vader swordsman dies at 89
In the original "Star Wars" trilogy, Darth Vader was normally played by bodybuilder David Prowse. But when Prowse failed to master the swordsmanship required for iconic lightsaber fight scenes, master fencer Bob Anderson stepped in.
We are sorry to report that Anderson passed away a few hours after midnight on Jan 1, 2012. He was 89 years old.
