Fans of Max Page know him as the child actor who played Darth Vader in the enormously popular Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial in 2011. While Max has pretty much lived out our ultimate childhood dream, it pales in comparison to his latest feat which involved undergoing open-heart surgery:

 
ABC News reports that Max is recovering after having undergone successful open heart surgery at Children's Hospital Los Angeles last Thursday. The surgery was to implant a new pulmonary valve which should last 15 years which will then be replaced through noninvasive surgery. Max also shared this bit of jedi wisdom to all his fans:
If you use your force and dream big, you can achieve anything. We may be small but we are mighty.
Hard to believe that this kid is only 7-years-old.
