I will be the most powerful Jedi ever. I promise you, I will even learn to stop people from dying.
– Anakin Skywalker, Attack of the Clones
Today we celebrate Hayden Christiensen at his 34th birthday (born 1981)
Hayden Christensen was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and played Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith and as Anakins ghost in Return of the Jedi.
Casting Director Robin Gurland has said this about him: “When Hayden came for his first meeting, I opened the door, and I just suddenly became flushed, because I knew. I sat him down and looked at him through the camera, and all of a sudden, I could feel goosebumps. I couldn’t get too excited, because it’s just the initial meeting, but by the end of it, I just knew that Anakin had walked in the door.”
Anakin Skywalker is the promising Jedi Padawan that turn to the Dark Side of the Force.
