VADER'S GLASS ACT; STAR WARS ACTOR SPENCER MAY TURN TO WINDOW CLEANING AS WORK DRIES UP.

Byline: NADEEM BADSHAH and AMELIA SHAW

HOW much would you pay to see the Star Wars villain Darth Vader cleaning your windows?

That could be a possibility as Rogue One star Spencer Wilding admits he could return to window cleaning as his acting work has dried up.

The Hollywood movie actor, 48, said the coronavirus pandemic has broken the industry.

The dad-of-three told the Daily Star it could now be time to "go back to my roots".

The Welsh star even joked that if he scrubbed panes as the Star Wars baddie "he could just use the force and they would all be cleaned!"

He added: "The acting has been put on hold and if I need some work I can go back to cleaning windows.

"I'm not above all that.

"I don't feel I would be lowering myself if I went back to cleaning windows.

"I used to have a massive window cleaning round and I need to do something to bring the money in.

"I have two teenage sons, as well as a 27-year-old daughter, and it would be good to set up a company for them to take over one day."

The 6'7" actor from Rhyl played Darth Vader in the 2016 Star Wars film Rogue One.

Spencer also played Frankenstein's Monster in the film Victor Frankenstein starring Daniel Radcliffe, as well as staring in Guardians Of The Galaxy, Doctor Who, Game Of Thrones, the Harry Potter films, The Wolfman, Batman Begins, Hell Boy, Atlantis and The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.

But the ex-pro kickboxer said he still thinks about washing windows or being a doorman.

"I love people, love being around people, and if someone needs their windows cleaning, I could do a good job.

"People in Rhyl and North Wales have always backed me and they might see 'Big Spen' going up and down ladders cleaning their windows again.

"Or I could go back to working on the door.

"I was a good doorman. "Parents would ring me up and say: 'If you're on the door, I know my kids will be safe.'"."
