“Darth Vader” Kid Set for Open-Heart Surgery

The 7-year-old star of one of my favorite commercials ever is scheduled to undergo open-heart surgery.  Max Page, who played the boy who played the Darth Vader kid in Volkswagen Passat Super Bowl commercial, will have the operation tomorrow at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.

The surgery will be Max’s eighth.

Max’s parents told the Today show’s Ann Curry that Max was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect at just 3 months old.

Good luck during your operation, Max, and may you have a speedy recovery.  May The Force be with you!
