It’s taken more than a month but Darth Vader’s funeral has finally be held.
Well actually it was the funeral for Dave Prowse who played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy. He died last month at the age of 85.
His daughter posted on Facebook, that COVID restrictions meant there was no wake but they hope to hold a celebration of his life when some semblance of ‘normality’ has returned.
She also posted pictures. Among them, a floral tribute featuring black flowers arranged in the shape of Darth Vader’s helmet.
Prowse physically played the Dark Lord. American actor James Earl Jones provided Vader’s voice.
