David Prowse, Darth Vader actor, passes away at 85
While James Earl Jones did the voice, Prowse was the man in the suit.

So Prowse was in the suit but wasn’t the guy whose face we see at the end of ROTJ or as the force ghost, right? That was Sebastian Shaw.

Correct. Just read an article on how hard it is to find the movies that don’t have lucas’s edits and extra cgi including Shaw still as anakins ghost at the bonfire/party. frick you george Lucas.

That’s not Prowse

ETA: have y’all ever heard Prowse’s voice before dubbing over my Jones? It’s comically bad

My bad, I cannot keep up with Lucas and the many Anakins.

Was never a fan of him replacing Shaw in RotJ.

He was also in A Clockwork Orange as the guy in the wheelchair's assistant.

It's a wonder the studio didn't force Lucas to replace Prowse early into the shoot.

While true when he was young & filming, somebody made a recent documentary about Prowse and gave him the chance to record/dub in his voice as Darth. It was pretty close to James Earl Jones & would have worked:

(Around the 9:30 mark is the goods)
Older Prowse sounds like J.E. Jones’ Vader

Another role where he visually owned the screen.
