Frankenstein's Creature/Scottish Strongman in the unofficial Bond film CASINO ROYALE 1967

I have been fortunate to meet Dave Prowse at several occasions, for example at:

- Memorabilia Show in Birmingham, Nov 2003 and April 2005
- Scandinavian SciFi convention in Gothenburg, March 2004
- Autographica in London, October 2005

Dave has always been a very pleasant chap to meet although he thought my then girlfriend was my daughter when she is really older than me! No hard feelings taken though as I think he is much different in real life compared to his classic role as the awful "Darth Vader" in episode 4-6 of the Star Wars films.

For non-Bond fans its worth knowing that he could have been "Jaws" as he tested for the role although Richard Kiel ended up with it.
