George Lucas Arranges for David Prowse to be Banned from Star Wars Conventions

Geek Twins is reporting that David Prowse, who played the body (but not the voice) of Darth Vader, has been banned from a set of upcoming Star Wars conventions. Allegedly, he's complained too much about not receiving residuals from the original trilogy and has gained the ire of George Lucas:

"It is with regret that I have been informed by my friends at C2 Ventures, Ben and Phillip, that I am not to be invited to C5 this year or any other Lucas Film associated events. After enquiring, the only thing I have been told is that I have 'burnt too many bridges between Lucas Film and myself' - no other reason given...I have also been advised by the promoter of Paris Manga in September that LFL (Lucas Film Limited) have requested no photo opportunities with the 501 Squadron, even though I am commander in chief of the 501"

Prowse was told by Lucas' representatives that the Star Wars films never made a profit, so he isn't owed a penny.
