    The number of performers who have brought life to the character of Anakin/Vader probably is probably among the most for a fictitious character in the modern era. I'm curious as to how people rank all of the different performances. Here's my take (in order of best to worst) - let's hear yours!

    James Earl Jones
    Bob Anderson
    Sebastian Shaw
    David Prowse
    Hayden Christensen
    Matt Lanter
    Jake Lloyd
    Spencer Wilding
    Daniel Naprous
    Matt Sloan
    Brock Peters

    Matt Lanter voiced Anakin in TCW
    Spencer Wilding was Darth Vader in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
    Daniel Naprous was Darth Vader in the final hallway scene in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
    Matt Sloan voiced Dareth Vader in various SW media as the sound double for James Earl Jones
    Brock Peters the internet says he worked on Star Trek, but nothing appears related to Star Wars...

    Google says he was Darth Vader in the Star Wars radio adaptations.

    Hayden Christensen

    James is THE voice, there is no other who can match him.
    Haydn is THE real Darth Vader, there is no other who can match him.
