Los Angeles (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Max Page, the young boy who played Darth Vader in the popular Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial, is recovering from successful open heart surgery.
His parents, Jennifer and Buck, said in a statement it was Max who offered them comfort and laughs heading into surgery.
Holding onto his stuffed animals and his brother's hand, his mom said he told everyone "it's ok, i'm not scared."
It’s the same upbeat attitude Max displayed at home just days before.
Doctors say the valve in Max's pulmonary artery was basically non-existent, slowing the blood flow from his heart to his lungs.
In surgery, doctors inserted a new pulmonary valve, helping his heart function more normally and allowing Max to be just like any other kid.
