LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The kid wearing the Darth Vader suit in the car commercial that aired during the Super Bowl has open heart surgery today. Max Page is seven.
He's also on "The Young and the Restless." Max was born with a congenital heart defect. Surgeons have to replace his pulmonary valve and fix a hole in his heart.
He's had several operations already and is still upbeat. Max told his mother that since he didn't have a choice about the procedures, he "might as well go through it with a good attitude."
