Dejvid Praus, (rođen 1. jula 1935), je engleski bodibilder, dizač tegova i glumac. Igrao je Darta Vejdera u izvornoj trilogiji Ratovi Zvezda, iako je glas filmskom liku pozajmio Džejms Erl Džons. Praus je govorio dijalog tokom snimanja iako on nikada nije ni bio korišćen kao glas Darta Vejdera. U sceni borbe između Vejdera i Luka Skajvokera (Mark Hamil), Praus, koji nije bio baš vešt mačevalac, zamenjen je na sceni sa scenskim mačevaocem, koreografom borbi i kaskaderom Bobom Andersonom. David Prowse, (born 1. July 1935) is an English bodybuilder, weightlifter and actor. He played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, though the character's voice was provided by James Earl Jones. Prowse spoke the dialogue during filming, although he was never going to be used as the voice of Darth Vader. In the lightsaber fight scenes between Vader and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Prowse, who wasn't a very skilled swordsman was replaced by the scene's fight-choreographer, the stuntman and fencing coach Bob Anderson.
