Hayden C – 'Lucas Saw My Dark Side'
And the force was strong in Hayden's and Natalie's onscreen chemistry
Hayden Christiensen has explained why he feels he got the part as Anakin Skywalker in the new Star Wars movie.
Speaking as a guest on TRL, Christiensen revealed that he managed to tap into the dark side which is what director George Lucas wanted. "I think George saw a chemistry between Natalie [Portman] and I and he saw a dark side which he could explore," explained Hayden to TRL's Alex Zane who was dressed as Princess Leia.
"It's surprising as I was on my best behaviour that day and I went in with a smile on my face - and he still got darkness." He went on to speak highly of the mighty Lucas...
"George is very too the point," he said. "He's a man of great intellect and great wisdom."
It is unclear if Hayden was even the slightest bit attracted to Alex - Britain's finest Princess Leia dragqueen.
