Ian McDiarmid, probably best known as The Emperor in the Star Wars films, suffered a suspected heart attack while on stage in London. The actor continued the opening night performance until the play’s final curtain call, refusing to go to the hospital until after the performance. McDiarmid is said to be fine. But of course he’s fine, a heart attack can’t kill a Sith Lord.
