Mini Darth Vader in Super Bowl Commercial Is From OC

Categories: TV
​The Force is from OC.  

The kid under the Darth Vader helmet in one of this year's most talked-about Super Bowl commercials is 6-year-old actor Max Page of San Clemente. 

He's become famous for starring as the pint-sized Star Wars villain in an ad for the 2012 Volkswagen Passat. In the commercial, he attempts to use "The Force" on various objects around the house--the washer and dryer, a sandwich, the family dog. The commercial debuted online days before the game and has gotten more than 16 million views.

Page, who appeared on the Today Show this morning, had a recurring role on 
The Young and the Restless last year. He was born with a congenital heart condition and is an outpatient at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
