May 24, 2007: David Prowse, who portrayed Darth Vader, signs autographs during the opening day of "Star Wars Celebration IV" in Los Angeles.

David Prowse, who wore the famous black suit and helmet, called Absolute Radio to raise money for the Royal Marsden Hospital in the U.K. and told listeners about this condition.

"I'm involved with [the hospital] because I'm undergoing treatment for prostate cancer," he told the station. "I'm having my very last treatment this morning."

His agent Keith Bishop told Sky News the cancer was caught in the early stages.

"He is hoping for a full recovery and making good progress," Bishop said.

Prowse said he's had two months' radiotherapy treatment at the Royal Marsden.

Hope he gets better, it'd be cool to meet him someday and get his autograph.

Technically that was James Earl Jones's line but he was in the suit doing this memorable pose.
