  • GUEST BIO

    C. Andrew Nelson (born June 22, 1962) is an actor, visual effects artist, animator, and lecturer.

    Nelson is most notable for having played the role of Darth Vader for Lucasfilm since 1994. His appearances as Vader include LucasArts’ Star Wars: Dark Forces and Star Wars: Rebel Assault II: The Hidden Empire games, the Special Edition of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, commercials, print ads, TV shows, and magazine covers. When artists at LucasArts had difficulty animating Vader’s movements for the cutscenes in Dark Forces, Nelson was filmed as Vader. The artists then performed touch-up painting and processing to the footage to make it match the earlier hand-animated shots in the game.
