    Due to health issues actor Dave Prowse is to end personal (con/autograph) appearances in Jan 2018. He's 82 and in 2014 he revealed that he has dementia.

    Sad to hear. I got an autograph from him at a local comic con in 2015 and he seemed like a nice guy.

    I figured this was coming. Too bad. I still have a Clockwork Orange poster for him to sign.

    Sad to hear.
    He deserves another chance to redeem with Lucasfilms.
