Nothing can stop that now. Just for once… let me look on you with my own eyes.

– Anakin Skywalker, Return of the Jedi

Today we remember Sebastian Shaw at his birthday (born 1905, died 23 Dec. 1994)

Sebastian Shaw was born in England, UK and played Anakin Skywalker in Return of the Jedi. He was primarily a stage actor but has appeared in some forty film and TV productions.

Anakin Skywalker is the dark Lord Darth Vader who is saved from the dark side of the Force by his son, Luke Skywalker.

In the 2004 DVD edition of Return of the Jedi, some changes were made. Shaw’s eyebrows were digitally removed from his face due to the fact that they would be burned off Anakin Skywalker. Sebastian Shaw’s image was replaced with that of Hayden Christensen during Anakin Skywalker’s appearance as a ghost in the last scene of Return of the Jedi.
