Anderson, who has died at age 89, donned Darth Vader's black helmet and fought light saber battles in two of the three original "Star Wars" films, "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."
according to this he did the sword fighting scenes

In all star wars movies except Revenge of the Sith, David Prowse played the role of Darth Vader.
The voice of Darth Vader was performed by James Earl Jones.
The character of Darth Vader was also played by several stunt doubles, most notably fencing instructor Bob Anderson.
In Revenge of the Sith, Hayden Christensen played as Darth Vader, both in the black armor, and out, however it is unknown whether James Earl Jones supplied the voice for Darth Vader when in the black armor in Revenge of the Sith.It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

Famously humble. Did not want credit for Star Wars because he felt he had done little to deserve it.
Stuttered badly. That's why he took acting lessons.
Does not fence.:)

my mom loved his voice. I assume he just grew into it. but it reminds of another voice. the late singer Barry White. he had one of those voices that made women pull off their under pants and throw em at him :D
in an interview I saw he claimed that voice magically appeared overnight. just got up one morning. went in to have breakfast with his parents. when he spoke their jaws dropped to the table. one of my fav singers
