Volkswagen’s Vader Kid Goes in For Open Heart Surgery

Volkswagen’s Vader Kid Goes in For Open Heart Surgery

Remember the cute little Vader Kid from VW‘s 2011 Superbowl commercials? He underwent open-heart surgery yesterday, and today it is confirmed that it went off without a hitch. 

His name is Max Page, and he is a seven year old child actor who has also appeared on the famous soap opera The Young and the Restless. He was admitted to LA’s children’s hospital to have a pulmonary valve replaced in his heart yesterday, and doctors have confirmed that he is ok and is in recovery.

With bravery equal to the real Darth Vader, Max said “Mom I don’t have a choice. I have to go through it. I don’t like it and it’s still scary—but I have to. So I think I might as well go through it with a good attitude.”

It’s good to hear that everything went ok, and we wish Max a speedy and healthy recovery.
