Diego Luna and Hayden Christensen are both famous Star Wars alums who recently did something that once seemed unlikely: they returned to the galaxy far, far away. Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+ provided a way for each of their characters to return. What was their latest go-around like compared to their initial foray into the franchise? That was just one of the many things they talked about when the two sat down for a new installment of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” series.
The famous Star Wars actors got together to discuss their experiences in one of the world’s most beloved franchises. Their talks included casting Hayden Christensen as a teenager and the secret process that led to Diego Luna joining the galaxy far, far away. Not that he ever expected someone who sounded like him to get such an important role in Rogue One.
But their first days in Star Wars is just the beginning of this fun discussion. It’s full of Star Wars goodies that cover both their childhood fandom and the bruises they suffered while filming. They also got into what Star Wars meant for their lives and careers and their recent work.
We especially loved learning Christensen’s daughter worried about his lightsaber battles on Obi-Wan Kenobi and hearing more about Andor. As well as finding out what items they took from set and more.
They might be famous alums, but this discussion shows they also have something in common with us. They’re big Star Wars fans.
