Widely regarded as the one of greatest stage and screen actors both in his native USA and internationally, James Earl Jones was born on January 17, 1931 in Arkabutla, Mississippi. At an early age, he started to take dramatic lessons to calm himself down. It appeared to work as he has since starred in many films over a 40-year period, beginning with the Stanley Kubrick classic Доктор Стрейнджлав, или Как я научился не волноваться и полюбил атомную бомбу (1964). For several movie fans, he is probably best known for his role as Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy (due to his contribution for the voice of the role, as the man in the Darth Vader suit was David Prowse, whose voice was dubbed because of his British West Country accent). In his brilliant course of memorable performances, among others, he has also appeared on the animated series Симпсоны (1989) three times and played Mufasa both in Король Лев (1994) and Король Лев (2019), while he returned too as the voice of Darth Vader in Звёздные войны. Эпизод 3: Месть Ситхов (2005) and Изгой-один. Звёздные войны: Истории (2016).
