Dave Prowse to Attend 2014 Cincinnati Comic Expo!
Cincinnati, OH – February 2014 - Science fiction fans and Sith Lords in Cincinnati have cause to rejoice with the announcement that Dave Prowse, the actor behind the mask of Darth Vader, will be coming to The Queen City for the 2014 Cincinnati Comic Expo being held this September at the Duke Energy Convention Center.
Prowse, a veteran actor of film and television, is best known for portraying the tragic villain, Darth Vader, in all three films of the original Star Wars trilogy. A champion bodybuilder, Mr. Prowse embodied the iconic character, whose distinct baritone voice was provided by James Earl Jones. The towering figure of Dave Prowse’s Darth Vader made an immediate impression on cinema audiences including Cincinnati Comic Expo founder, Andrew Satterfield: “I recall the first time seeing Star Wars at the local Dent Drive-In. The scene where Darth Vader walks through the rebel blast doors and interrogates the rebels was terrifying. However, I couldn’t take my eyeballs off the screen.”
While Dave Prowse is a familiar face at comic book and science fiction conventions in Europe, the actor is more discerning when it comes to attending events in the United States. The fifth annual Cincinnati Comic Expo marks the first time that Dave Prowse has come to Cincinnati and is the only opportunity Star Wars fans in the Midwest will have to meet this legend of the silver screen. Satterfield is appreciative that the actor has included Cincinnati as part of his touring schedule: “Each year Mr. Prowse hand selects a few USA signing appearances. We are honored the Sith Lord himself chose the 5th annual Cincinnati Comic Expo.” In addition to signing autographs and taking pictures with guests, the actor will be taking part in panel discussions; telling stories about how Star Wars came to life and answering questions from fans.
Dave Prowse will be joined at this year’s convention by fellow Star Wars alum Peter Mayhew, who played the Millennium Falcon’s heroic and hairy co-pilot Chewbacca. Additional media guests also include former Power Ranger and mixed martial arts fighter Jason David Frank, Jewel Staite from the cult hit television program Firefly, and John Rhys Davies who is best known for his roles in the Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings film series. More guest announcements are expected in advance of the 2014 Cincinnati Comic Book Expo, which will be held from Friday, September 19, through Sunday, September 21.
