A young actor who appeared in a popular Super Bowl ad will undergo open heart surgery.

Max Page, 7, portrayed a mini Darth Vader who tried using 'the force' around the house. He was born with a congenital heart defect so Thursday Max will have surgery to replace a valve and repair a hole in his heart. This will be his 8th surgery in seven years.

Max has made a can-do list of things he plans to do once he's feeling better.

"I'm looking forward to August 'cause me and my brother made a holiday called Brothers Day. And it's August 1st," he said.

Max is expected to be in the hospital for about five days.

In addition to his work in TV ads, Max also appears on the soap opera "The Young and Restless."
