13 Star Wars Secrets Revealed By Hayden Christensen & Diego Luna

Obi-Wan Kenobi star Hayden Christensen and Andor star Diego Luna recently shared their Star Wars experiences during an extended conversation. Hayden Christensen and Diego Luna were paired for Variety’s Actors on Actors interview, leading to a long conversation during which the actors discussed their roles in the Star Wars universe. Christensen recently starred in Obi-Wan Kenobi as both Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader, whereas Luna recently reprised his role as Cassian Andor in the Andor series.
Hayden Christensen joined Star Wars for Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, whereas Diego Luna played Cassian for the first time in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. A Jedi Knight turned into Sith Lord and a lonely fighter turned into a rebel hero are very different Star Wars characters. However, Christensen and Luna’s experiences with Star Wars are similar in a lot of ways.
13 Hayden Christensen STILL Hasn't Let His Daughter Watch Star Wars When discussing being in the Darth Vader suit, Hayden Christensen revealed that his eight-year-old daughter has never seen him on Star Wars. Christensen noted that his daughter is aware that he plays a character in Star Wars, yet that he is still trying to decide how to present the films to her. That said, Christensen shared a wholesome story about taking his daughter to the Obi-Wan Kenobi set when the Anakin and Obi-wan flashback scene was being filmed.
12 Hayden Christensen's Obi-Wan Kenobi Mementos Show The Duality Of Anakin Skywalker Hayden Christensen kept a few lightsabers during his run as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. Christensen revealed that he kept one lightsaber from the prequels, followed by two lightsabers from Obi-Wan Kenobi. Christensen noted how Anakin’s lightsaber is different from Darth Vader’s, which is why keeping one of each was so special. While Hayden Christensen got in the Darth Vader suit for Revenge of the Sith, it was only in Obi-Wan Kenobi that he really got to play Darth Vader. Whether Christensen will reprise his role as Darth Vader in a hypothetical Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 remains to be seen.
11 The Idea For Andor Was A Joke While Making Rogue One Diego Luna revealed that there were conversations about telling Cassian Andor’s origin story, as well as the origin stories of other Rogue One characters, during the making of the film. However, Luna revealed that they all took those conversations as a joke, initially. According to the Andor star, they could not actually plan something for any of the Rogue One characters before the movie premiered. They had to know how well Rogue One would be received first.
10 Diego Luna’s First Meeting With Rogue One Director Was A Big Secret Diego Luna described his first meeting with Rogue One director Gareth Edwards, and it feels like a scene from a spy movie. Firstly, Luna did not know the meeting was for a Star Wars project, although his agent suspected that it could be about Star Wars. Diego Luna met Gareth Edwards at an empty restaurant, with the director waiting for him at the back of the restaurant with a laptop on the table. All the secrecy aside, Rogue One’s director walked Luna through the entire film, focusing on Cassian Andor’s point of view.
9 Diego Luna Didn’t See Himself In Star Wars At First When asked by Gareth Edwards to play Cassian in Rogue One, Diego Luna said that he did not see himself in Star Wars. Despite being a Star Wars fan, Luna never thought that joining the Star Wars universe was possible. The actor noted how “no one has [his] accent” in Star Wars. Fortunately, that scenario has changed. Diego Luna’s leading roles in Rogue One and Andor were a landmark in terms of representativity for Latino actors in Star Wars and Hollywood as a whole.
8 Andor Showrunner Wanted It To Steer Away From Star Wars Tropes Andor creator Tony Gilroy purposely tried to avoid Star Wars tropes and anything that felt too familiar in the context of the franchise. Diego Luna revealed that the idea was to tell a Star Wars story from the point of view of characters that you do not really follow in the movies, going for a more grounded take rather than a fantastical one. Gilroy’s decision worked perfectly for Andor, as the show delivered something completely different from other Star Wars stories. This unique take on Star Wars will continue in Andor season 2.
