LOS ANGELES (AP) — The 7-year-old actor who plays a pint-sized Darth Vader in a popular car commercial is out of the hospital after open-heart surgery.

A spokesman for Children's Hospital Los Angeles says Max Page was released Monday, four days after his pulmonary valve was replaced in a two-hour operation. Max headed home with his parents and younger brother.

Max, who plays Reed on the CBS soap opera "The Young and the Restless," was born with a congenital heart defect and has undergone multiple surgeries.
