Darth Vader’s Voice Without James Earl JonesMay 4th, 2014
One of Darth Vader’s most distinguishing characteristics is the deep, intimidating voice given to him by actor James Earl Jones in post production. But it was actor David Prowse who donned the Sith Lord’s helmet and cape for the on-screen filming and Prowse spoke all of Vader’s lines during the filming. This clip from the documentary film Empire of Dreams shows us what the dialogue sounded like with David Prowse as the voice of Darth Vader.
