Submission + - (The real) Darth Vader speaks (bbc.co.uk)

smooth wombat writes: In conjunction with the auction of an original Darth Vader costume from the time of The Empire Strikes Back, the BBC interviewed the man behind the mask, David Prowse.

When asked if he had any idea of how successful the film would become, Prowse replies:

"I thought I was doing a load of rubbish, I really did," he laughs. "You were wandering round looking at all these funny creatures and fantastic sets, but you had no idea what it would look like at the finish."

Prowse also notes he and James Earl Jones, the voice of Vader, have never met but have spoken on the phone a few times.
