Prowse and Lucas

David Prowse has revealed that Lucas shows no sign of letting up on him. It appears that Prowse is not allowed to attend official Star Wars events or anything else connected to Lucasfilm.
Surely it is time that Lucas grew up and moved on from this.

I remember having this discussion before with you a long long time ago with an alternative user name far, far away...

Sorry to disappoint you, but we have never had this conversation. I only posted this as I read an interview with prowse that was published today. Get your facts straight.

I think you have me confused with someone else. I have never had this conversation with you. So deal with it.

Basically, Prowse insists that Lucas promised that when Vader finally revealed his face it would be that of Prowse. Of course that wasn't the case and Prowse was not pleased.
Around about this time a British tabloid printed spoilers concerning ROTJ and Prowse was deemed to have been the one who went to the press.
From that moment on Lucas refused to have anything to do with Prowse, so much so that it has been alleged that most of the Vader scenes filmed after the incident were filmed without Prowse.

David Prowse was the honoured guest at the first Star Wars convention in Toronto, back in 1997. If he was 'Persona Non Grata' with Lucas, wouldn't he be barred from attending?

I am only reporting what has been said by both Prowse and Lucas.

Having just done a quick bit of research the event in Toronto was not an official Lucasfilm event and that is why Prowse was able to attend. I hope that helps.

That is interesting, I knew they had some beef but I never knew the circumstances behind it. Thanks for the information, it is intriguing.

Back in 2003, Prowse was talking to the media; saying he told Geroge Lucas he was getting in shape again to be ready to put on the Vader costume again, if he wanted him.
Now Lucas didn't use him of course - but was that Prowse trying to make nice, or indicating the two have a good relationship?

I have heard in the past that it was an attempt at clearing the air on the part of Prowse, but how true that is I don't know.

Prowse claims he hasn't spoken with Lucas since 1983.
I'm not sure anyone is in the wrong in all of this, but I must admit, Prowse hasn't done himself many favours over the years in interviews, and with his appearance in Saving Star Wars.

The bottom line is, this all started with Vader's death scene being leaked to the Daily Mail - Prowse claims a reporter duped him into showing him the call sheet with Sebastian Shaw's scene on it, under the pretense of be interested in interviewing Prowse about his weightlifting career.

Either way, I doubt David could have delivered on his promises about "getting into shape" for the role in 2003 - he has been virtually crippled by artritis since the late 90s, in fact he was recovering from a hip operation around the time ROTS was being made wasn't he?

On the other hand, I'm not sure "banning" him from Lucas-sanctioned events is the way forward either.
It's just one of those silly little feuds that has lingered on over the years.
