Darth Vader Kid Heart Surgery

The seven-year-old star who adorably channeled The Force in a Super Bowl commercial will soon undergo his EIGHTH open-heart surgery.

Little Max Page, who famously dressed in Darth Vader‘s mask and cape for a 2011 Volkswagen Passat ad will be undergoing open heart surgery on June 14.

According to a TODAY show report, the 7-year-old child actor was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect when he was only 3 months-old, his parents said only hours before Max had to check into the hospital.

“He’s scared and he’s nervous” said his father Buck Page.

Because of the surgery — his eighth! — Max was disappointed about canceling his summer plans. However, his mom Jennifer Page created a “can-do” list of all the things he’d be able to do during his recovery, such as watching movies and playing Nintendo Wii.

And it doesn’t end there! He’ll also be having a themed house to recover from surgery. “The garage is the ‘explode zone,'” his mom explained. “It’s covered in science projects and paint. And every stuffed animal he owns is in the living room waiting for him.”

Max’s parents are optimistic about the surgery’s outcome. Buck told Today, “Max has not known how good he can feel. So this is going to enable him to become even more active, which is hard to believe.”
