On Brock Peters

The other voice of Darth Vader, Brock Peters, has passed away. He was 78.

Many will associate Peters with To Kill a Mockingbird or his two Star Trek roles–as Admiral Cartwright in films IV and VI and as Joseph Sisko in Deep Space Nine–but I will always associate Peters with the voice of Darth Vader from NPR’s radio adaptations of the classic Star Wars films.

Rest in peace, Mister Peters.
