Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor aren’t just the stars of Disney+’s “Obi-Wan Kenobi” — they’re close friends who have a 20-plus year bond that’s been shaped by one of the greatest franchises in cinema history. While all those expectations must weigh heavily on their robed shoulders, these two know how to keep it light. When we sat down with Christensen, he revealed that McGregor is “a very funny man” who “keeps [him] laughing” — a far cry from the heated rivalry their iconic characters have on screen.
Christensen also opened up about whether or not McGregor says “Hello, there” as a greeting in real life (we ask the tough questions), his favorite aspects of the Darth Vader suit, memorable fan interactions, and various other topics that dive into what it’s like to return to this character after more than two decades.
