Max Page, 7, is best known for his performance as a boy trying (unsuccessfully) to use “The Force” all around his house. His dad secretly uses his remote start on the family’s Passat to give the frustrated Darth-Vader-in-training a boost in confidence.
It was not common knowledge that the boy who helped steal show during the 2011 Super Bowl commercials, was born with a congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot. The defect is actually a combination of four defects, with at least three of the four always presenting, and one of the four does not. It also causes other disorders and severe symptoms and is very apparent shortly or immediately after birth.
Max has had many surgeries in his young life. This last one, which repaired a heart valve, (one part of the Tetralogy) had been planned for quite some time. He has been treated at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles since he was an infant and left the hospital June 18th.
Max has also had roles on “The Young and the Restless” and “Prime Suspect,” and uses his fame to help raise funds for pediatric treatment and research.
