Many actors and actresses who have appeared in the Star Wars saga have been routinely praised for their out-going nature and genuine fan appreciation when approached at conventions and other events. They kindly sign autographs and pose for pictures that eager fans will cherish forever.
And every so often, those same actors and actresses go above & beyond the normal "call of the celebrity" and asssit fellow Star Wars fans in ways that cannot be conveyed with simple signatures or photographs.
See the following excerpt from an article posted over on EveningNews24.co.uk and then click HERE for the full read:
"Richard Walker, the chairman of the Norwich and District Star Wars Club, was recently diagnosed with the cancer, but has not let it stop him from organising the club's third Norwich Sci-fi Film, Comic, Toy and Collectors Fair this weekend.
The 59-year-old, from Mile Cross Road, said he had received words of support from Darth Vader actor David Prowse, who is due to make a guest appearance at the event in Norwich on Sunday and who publicly spoke out earlier this year about his fight against the disease."
Once again, the essence of Star Wars and those involved in its creation shines extremely brightly.
