Bob Anderson, Mark Hamil

Here’s bit of sad news to start out the new year. Bob Anderson, Hollywood Sword Master and former Sith Lord passed away on Monday. The 89 year-old Olympian choreographed some of Hollywood’s most memorable fights, but is best known for his role as Darth Vader, having donned the mask for many of his iconic duels.

The number of awesome films he’s contributed to over the years is truly staggering. Films like Highlander, Die Another Day, and From Russia with Love, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Princess Bride — the list goes on. In addition to having competed in the 1952 Olympics, Anderson served as a member of Britain’s elite Royal Marines during World War II, suffice to say he lived quite the life. The man was incredibly talented and he’ll truly be missed.
