Such incredibly sad news. The physicality of that performance went hand in hand with JEJ's voice over. The look of anguish, even with the helmet on, when Palpatine is electrocuting Luke on the 2nd Death Star is so powerfull.

Took my son many years ago to a Cardiff convention.
He had his poster signed, along with Kenny Baker.

Very sad news indeed. By all accounts he was a lovely man, kind and generous. He will be greatly missed by friends, family and fans the world over :-(

Rest in peace, Dave.

Graham C told me that when he got this signed for me, Peter, who had been grumpy all day, stopped and held this and took a moment to himself, then said "Ahhh.... I miss Kenny".

All gone now :(

Petition to get a David Prowse statue on the vacant Colston plinth, on Bristol city centre.

Rachel Prowse's approval......

Probably won't get anywhere, but would be a lovely gesture.
