I am always disappointed, confused and let down when Luke pulls of Vader’s helmet in ROTJ.
What were they thinking?
Vader was mythical, larger than life, even by cinema standards.
Why show that face? Those weepy eyes? He looked weak and bloated. Wasn’t he just battling like a champ with Luke and the Palpatine?
That actor, is Sebastian Shaw. He has been replaced by Hayden Christensen as a force ghost in newer releases.
I think Sebastian Shaw wins as least known Star Wars Actor… and least needed. If George Lucas has regrets, taking off Vader’s mask has to be top
- Imagine if we still didn’t know what he looked like under that thing?
It would make scenes like this all the better.
