Trivia that mentions this person:
Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones [2002]
  • Hayden Christensen became the only actor in any Star Wars movie who didn't get to choose the design of his light sabre. It had been a tradition, but Christensen was stuck using a sabre of the same design that Obi-wan gives Luke in Star Wars.
  • Like Ewan McGregor did in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Hayden Christensen made "lightsaber noises" the first time he was handed one in rehearsal. After chuckling at the young star's antics, George Lucas informed him that they probably had people in Sound Effects who could do a better job in post production.
    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith [2005]
  • George Lucas deliberately made the Darth Vader suit top-heavy (for instance adding weight on the helmet) to make Hayden Christensen not appear "too accustomed" to it in the movie.
  • At Hayden Christensen's request, George Lucas had a new Darth Vader suit made to fit him, rather than reuse the one in the original trilogy and have a different actor play Vader.
    The Village [2004]
  • Aaron Eckhart, Thomas Jane and Hayden Christensen were considered to play Noah.
    Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker [2019]
  • Among the Jedi voices Rey hears during the "all Jedi" scene are: Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), Luminara Unduli (Olivia d'Abo), Ahsoka Tano ([?] Ashley Eckstein), Aayla Secura (Jennifer Hale), Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson), younger Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), older Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness via digitally altered archive audio), Yoda (Frank Oz), Adi Gallia ([?] Angelique Perrin), Kanan Jarrus (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson), and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
    Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi [2018]
  • According to Rian Johnson, Laura Dern could not resist saying "pew pew pew!" when she was required to fire a blaster. This is similar to Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen in the prequels: both had a habit of making lightsaber noises while they dueled.
