Max Page is probably the most famous six-year-old Star Wars fan in the world right now. Last night he starred in Volkswagen's Star Wars-infused commercial for the 2012 VW Passat. The ad has over 15 million views on YouTube as of this writing, and it ranked number 1 among all Super Bowl XLV commercials on Hulu's AdZone 2011 leaderboard, with 95% voter approval.
Max, who lives in the southern California area, is already a prolific actor, with an ongoing role in the soap opera The Young and the Restless. Click here to check out the full story on Max, who was born with a heart defect and had open heart surgery at just a few months old.

UPDATE:KABC is reporting that young Max got the chance to meet the voice of Darth Vader himself, James Earl Jones, on a trip to Broadway in New York. According to the story, "Jones said he really enjoyed meeting the young actor. 'It's all about pretend. That's the fun part of being an actor and fun part of being a child,' said Jones."
