David Prowse – the actor best known for playing Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy – and adventurer Ranulph Fiennes are among a group of British celebrities who have created portraits of themselves to raise money for ActionAid.
The portraits – along with those created by the general public – will eventually be put together to form a huge mosaic of a girl from Uganda called Enid, who represents the 72 million children who can’t go to school because of poverty.
“Every now and again a good cause comes along that could do with a little help from the dark side,” said David.
The mosaic will go on display in Bristol on June 1. To contribute your own self-portrait to the initiative, click here before May 17.
