Men Behind The Mask

Darth Vader is the galaxies most infamous villain. Vader appears in the original film trilogy as a pivotal antagonist whose actions drive the plot of the first three films. At bluedot we will give you an intriguing insight into the creation of world’s most famous character.

Brian Muir will talk about his experience sculpting Vader’s helmet. Brian sculpted the helmet from initial concept sketches by Ralph McQuarrie, and is credited as the man behind the mask. The man inside the mask on the other hand was David Prowse, who wore the suit throughout the original film trilogy.

This is your chance to get upfront and close with Darth Vader in the most intimate way possible. After an on stage presentation by the pair telling their story as it is, with screen presentations and panels, you will then get a chance to ask Brian And Dave your own questions in an interactive Q&A session.

This may never happen again, a once in a lifetime opportunity for any Star Wars fan. Bluedot is very proud to bring to you, The Men Behind The Mask.

This will be hosted by For the Love of Sci-Fi.
