The Men Behind the Mask
Who portrayed Vader in films?
Lord Vader's deep, raspy, computerized voice is one of the character's trademarks. Many people are aware that James Earl Jones was the voice behind the mask in the original trilogy, but Jones wasn't the man inside the suit.
Darth Vader was portrayed by bodybuilder UK David Prowse in non-fighting scenes in Episodes IV - VI, and stunt performer Bob Anderson was the man who portrayed Vader in the lightsaber fight scenes.
