Увлекательная жизнь Дарта Вейдера

С момента своего дебюта в эпической саге «Звездные войны» в 1977 году Дарт Вейдер (Darth Vader) ведет очень занятой образ жизни. Помимо съемок в нескольких фильмах, Владыка Ситхов находил время, чтобы принять участие и в других мероприятиях. Например, в последние месяцы он проявил большой интерес к украинской политике. На протяжении многих лет фотокорреспондентам удавалось запечатлеть Темного Владыку на премьерах, митингах, рекламных мероприятиях, конференциях и в спортивных состязаниях. Ловили его и на порочащих поступках, в том числе во время ограбления банка.
