Obi-Wan Kenobi Series: The Current Face of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker [Star Wars]

During the first 4 episodes of the Obi Wan Kenobi 2022 series on Disney+, the Dark Vader character always appeared with a black helmet  covering his deformed face, which made fans think that they would not be able to see the present face of actor Hayden in this series. But that has changed in Episode/Part 5.

Hayden has appeared in his full form, shape and face at the age of 41 in several flashbacks, in which Dark Vader (still the Jedi Anakin at that time) was practicing lightsabers with Obi Wan – then his mentor and master. The flashback may take place before the events of Star War III – Revenge of the Sith (2005).

Instead of using CGI effects, the filmmakers seemed to keep the current faces of both actors Hayden (Anakin) and Ewan (Obi Wan); only makeup to make them look younger.

When filming Revenge of the Sith (2005), Hayden born in 1981 was at the age of 24.

Dark Vader at the time of the Obi Wan Kenobi series is at the peak of his power with the Force that can be called unmatched in the galaxy, but also a cunning, brutal and bloodthirsty villain.
