You can breathe easy: No Darth Vader porn — for now

vaderOh, David Prowse — it’s just not a good week for you, is it?

The actor and former bodybuilder who wore the Sith suit in the original Star Wars trilogy was on location at an English bungalow when police forces raided the set. They’d been tipped off by neighbor who saw the camera and lighting equipment being hauled into the home and naturally assumed it was being used in the production of a skin flick.

What was really being filmed, according to the U.K.’s Metro, is a movie called The Kindness of Strangers; the director’s ex-husband owns the Staffordshire home.

Last week the BBC reported Mr. Prowse broke down on a busy English highway and needed police assistance (or, “used the Force”) to make it to a convention appearance. Now in his 70s, the actor, who was once also a pedestrian safety spokesman, is certainly maintaining a healthy relationship with British law enforcement personnel. That, or he has one of the most unique publicists in the realm.
