LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The 6-year-old actor who played a pint-sized Darth Vader in one of the Super Bowl’s breakout commercials has been unmasked — and he admits he has never seen the iconic George Lucas movies.
“I’ve actually never seen ‘Star Wars,’” 6-year-old Max Page, the boy behind the Vader helmet in Volkswagen’s ad for the new Passat, told Access Hollywood Live’s Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday.
Max, who was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect at age four and has a pacemaker, has appeared as Reed Hellstrom on CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.” Kit asked the young actor what role he hopes to land next.
“Hmm, I don’t know,” Max, who was accompanied by his mom, Jennifer Page, said. “My mom said if I get on Oprah, she’s gonna open my bank account! It’s probably what I’m trying to get.”
“I got a felling you’re gonna be on Oprah because I’ve got a feeling she’s gonna see this,’ Billy said.
“Yes!” Max added enthusiastically.
