Some good news. No in fact it is brilliant news. First some background. Back in March 2009 David Prowse aka Darth Vader aka The Green Cross Code Man was diagnosed with cancer. Bad news all round. Good news is that he has now got the all clear. The Dark Side has let him go.
The UK Daily Mirror newspaper reported the news.
Star Wars actor David, 74, who played the 6ft 6in villain in the first three films, got the all-clear last month.
The former body-builder—and TV’s Green Cross Code—stunned doctors by making a full recovery after intensive radiotherapy at London’s Royal Marsden Hospital.
Speaking from his home in Croydon, Surrey, David said: “I’ve won the fight and I’m feeling better than ever. Everyone was shocked by how well it all went.”
