Darth Vader's
Suit In
Obi-Wan Kenobi
"Obi-Wan Kenobi,” on Disney+, is raising the stock of George Lucas' most infamous character, Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen). The former Jedi apprentice is at the height of his abilities, but this doesn’t mean that Christensen is donning the character's legendary digs for most of his scenes.
According to stuntman Dmitrious Bistrevsky, the portrayal of Vader is carried out by three people: Bistrevsky, another stunt person named Tom O'Connell, and Christensen. "We all worked together to create the best Darth Vader in cinematic history," Bistrevsky said.
According to Bistrevsky, all three men wore the Vader threads and worked as a team throughout the production, with Christensen being the Hollywood glue that bound them. "Without Hayden, there would be no story for me to tell," he said.
