David Prowse Treated For Cancer

Posted By Mike on March 18, 2009

The TimesOnline report that David Prowse, Darth Vader from the original trilogy, revealed to a UK morning radio show that he has been receiving treatment for prostate cancer.

From the TimesOnline:

"Hoping to raise money for London’s Royal Marsden Hospital, the actor, 73, told the Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show: "I'm involved with the Royal Marsden Hospital appeal because I'm undergoing treatment for prostate cancer, would you believe. I'm having my very last treatment this morning.

"I've had two months' radiotherapy treatment at the Royal Marsden. It's the most fantastic hospital you could ever wish to go to."

Prowse, who was cast for the 1977 Star Wars movie partly because of his 6ft 5in height, told listeners that he now felt “fantastic”.

"The only thing I've had is hot flushes and my wife tells me I'm going menopausal," he said."
