Memories of Star Wars that belonged to the late Dave Prowse, who played the iconic villain Darth Vader, go under a hammer.

Prowse passed away last year at the age of 85, following a short illness after living with Alzheimer’s disease.

Around 600 items will be auctioned this month, with a percentage of the proceeds going to Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Dave Prowse’s Star Wars script is up for auction

Among the lots are an original production script used by Prowse from The Empire Strikes Back and a small piece from the Millennium Falcon, as well as a series of signed posters and photos from the franchise.

In addition to playing the classic villain in the original Star wars trilogy, he was also the face of road safety in the UK, with his Green Cross Code Man suit also auctioned off.

Two months were spent researching and organizing the star’s articles by her friend and assistant Julian Owen.

He said: “It has been an honor to do this for the Prowse family. I have worked with Dave for over 10 years and browsing the collection brought back many great memories. We expect a lot of interest from all over the world. .

“It was so hard to see Dave’s decline with Alzheimer’s disease. We worked together most weekends and every time I saw him there was a little less of him there.

“Dave’s wife Norma said from the start that she wanted some of the money raised to go to Alzheimer’s Research UK.

“While nothing can be done for Dave, she knows how important it is to support dementia research, to ensure that future generations do not have to endure the same grief.

“Dave would love to know that some of the points raised will help others. “

Signed photos and posters will also go under the hammer

Tim Parry, director of the charity, said: “David Prowse is a movie icon who introduced the world to one of the most enduring villains of all time.

“It is an honor that Alzheimer’s Research UK benefits from this auction, which will undoubtedly generate a huge buzz in the Star Wars community.

“We cannot thank Norma and the family enough for using the auction as a vehicle to support research into breakthrough treatments for dementia. ”
