Feel the Force with David Prowse

If we say the name David Prowse, you may not know who we’re talking about… but the name Darth Vader will send shivers down everyone’s spine. 

The actor who played the iconic Star Wars baddie is the star of a new documentary Light Side: A Journey With David Prowse that airs at the Courthouse on Thursday, January 16 from 7pm. With rare and exclusive access to David, the documentary brings a fresh perspective to a celebrated career.

Besides playing the most iconic screen villain in cinema history, the Bristol-born Prowse also featured in Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, trained Christopher Reeve for 1978’s Superman and was awarded an MBE by the Queen in 2000 for his contribution to road safety awareness through his work as the Green Cross Code Man.
