Darth Vader Is a Soap Star


Did you love the Volkswagen / Darth Vader: The Force commercial that aired during the Super Bowl? You're not alone. We rated it the top ad of the broadcast, as did a lot of other web sites and publications. But did you know that that mini–Darth Vader has a soap connection?

The young actor playing Darth Vader is Max Page, best known as Reed on 'The Young and the Restless.' As Reed, Max has been recurring on Y&R since 2009.

Thanks to the VW Passat commercial, Max has been getting lots of attention, including a guest spot on the 'Today' show. Because of the Star Wars costume, nobody recognizes Max as Darth Vader, but Max told Meredith Viera he's often stopped by fans who've been watching him on Y&R.
