The actor, Hayden Christensen, who plays Darth Vader in the upcoming series recently gave an interview to JOE.ie. He made some interesting comments in the conversation. Talking about Darth Vader, he said, “Vader is at a pivotal time in his life. He’s spent ten years now sort of imprisoned in this suit and in his new life, and how all of that has affected him. There’s a lot of great character exploration there,” Christensen then continued, “I don’t want to give anything away, but there’s really sort of a struggle of identity with Vader. I think that’s at the core of who he is. And in this, we get to explore that.”
