Name: Darth Vader                                                                 
Darth Vader is a fictional character from the Star Wars universe. He was         
portrayed by bodybuilder David Prowse and a series of stunt doubles, most         
notably Bob Anderson, while his voice was supplied by actor James Earl Jones.     
The character is one of the most iconic villains in film history and was ranked   
third on American Film Institute's 100 Heroes and Villains list.                 
In the original trilogy, Vader is depicted as the brutal head enforcer of the     
Galactic Empire's rule across the galaxy. Vader serves as the apprentice of       
Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), using the dark side of the Force to           
mercilessly pursue the Jedi and the Rebel Alliance to the ends of the galaxy.     
The prequel trilogy recounts the heroic rise and tragic fall of Vader's former   
self, Anakin Skywalker. Anakin was portrayed by Jake Lloyd and Hayden             
Christensen in the prequel trilogy, while Sebastian Shaw played the role in       
Return of the Jedi. (New releases of Jedi have Christensen as the jedi ghost     
with Yoda and Obi-Wan.)
