The Screening Room S3E19 - Remembering Dave Prowse

November 30, 2020

Last weekend brought the sad news of the passing of a Star Wars legend:  Dave Prowse.  The British actor and weightlifting champion portrayed numerous characters during the 60s and 70s, but is perhaps best known for playing the iconic villain Darth Vader, as well as the children's safety advocate The Green Cross Code Man.

In this episode, Rutvig remembers his many encounters with Dave over the years and the impact Dave's work had on him as a child.

The book Dave talks about in the audio clip at the end of this episode is Play Safe with the Stars: Child’s Guide to Safety and used copies can be readily found online.  The audio clip was edited from this interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6AxQyBsbu8 used with respect to the original author(s).

RIP Dave.  Thank you for the memories.
