Legendary actor James Earl Jones, who is known for the iconic role of Darth Vader, doesn’t know if he will lend his voice to “Star Wars” again.
“I have no idea. I’ve loved being a part of that whole cult. Especially because I’m only special effects, I’m not a character. But it’s been great. But that’s all I know.”
He said “Star Wars” fans often quote the film to him, but they tend to get his most memorable line, “I am your father,” wrong.
“It’s become whatever you want, however you want to say it. It’s still a tribute to the story.”
The Emmy, Tony, and Honorary Oscar winner has had so many roles from stage to screen so he has an interesting outlook on success.
“I can say I succeeded in a character, not saying what happens beyond the footlights,” he said. “I’m not saying how the audience liked it. I’m saying how I can best understand the character and contribute myself to it. That’s all I can do.”
These days, he is lending his name and famous voice to a cause close to his heart, sharing his story of living with Type 2 Diabetes as a paid spokesperson for Janssen Pharmaceuticals.
“I call it living well. I will always be a diabetic but I want to live as best I can…”
