Freddie Prinze Jr.: Why I Can’t Tell My Daughter About My New Role
But that’s not the case — and for good reason.
“I don’t tell her, ‘Daddy does cartoon voices,’ because to her those characters are so real and magical. What kind of jerk would I be?” Prinze, 38, told PEOPLE during a preview of the show’s new Lego products at the American International Toy Fair in New York City.
“She loves villains. Her favorite character is Vader and she wants to kill Jedis,” says Prinze with a laugh. “I don’t know what my daughter will become.”
“It’s Star Wars, man! I got this scar on my chin after playing with some aluminum poles my cousin and I pretended were lightsabers. To be a part of this is surreal,” he explains.
As for his own son, “He’s big enough to play with Hot Wheels cars now without swallowing them.”
