    A sad day indeed. Goodbye man inside movieland's arguably most iconic suit. There are a few contenders, but you're on the short list.

    Great bloke, met him many times at conventions.

    Always made effort to see fans.

    Had some interesting stories to tell.

    He was supposed to be super nice to anyone who met him. Polar opposite of Anthony Daniels.

    JEJ got to say all the cool lines, but they wouldn't have worked so well if he hadn't been able to play off Prowse's body language. He never got enough credit for his performance skills. He was an artist.

    And, unless I'm mistaken, he's the only actor to play two different Frankenstein monsters: one opposite Ralph Bates in "Horror of Frankenstein" and another opposite Peter Cushing in "Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell".

    It’s against his programming to impersonate a grateful actor of limited ability.

    IIRC actually another SW actor confronted him not long ago about his reputation, and he's subsequently lightened up to an extent.

    Sorry to hear about Ben Bova - I think I have a few books of his in the bookcases.

    I read some of his Gran Tour books, stopping at Jupiter, and the non-fiction book Immortality.

    I read a few of his short story anthologies, but I think the only novel I ever read of his was Privateers.

    I read his Orion series. Read my first one back when I was a teen, and the last a year or two ago. Not deep, but fun.

    His work looks better still when compared to others who have played Vader. Prowse had all the subtle movements and timing; others have just had a suit.
