Ahsoka’s metaphysical step into the unknown in the climax of last week’s episode, “Fallen Jedi,” paved the way for the first truly big moment of the series so far—a fated encounter between Ahsoka Tano and her former Jedi Master, Anakin Skywalker. But to find the right balance of such a moment, director Peter Ramsey pushed his guest star to a personal place.
Speaking to IGN about the moment, Ramsey discussed what it was like having Hayden Christensen—already on the high of his prior return in Obi-Wan Kenobi—back as Anakin for Ahsoka. “He’s a really sweet, low-key guy,” Ramsey told IGN of the actor’s return. “He was pretty happy about being there after all this time. It had a lot of meaning for him.”
