Just wanted to post my condolences to the family of Bob Anderson, the stuntman who portrayed Vader in the fight scenes in Empire and Jedi. He died on jan 1st

He was a great age 89 but I just thought he should be remembered here.

May the force be with you Bob.

I thought it was interesting to see all the other movies he was involved in. He's done a lot of stunt work and swordsmanship in some big name films, even recent films like Pirates of the Caribbean.

He was well into his seventies when he did them.

A remarkable guy.
