It’s probably no one’s favorite scene in any Star Wars movie, but it’s likely one you can’t get out of your brain. In Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) raids the Jedi Temple, and eventually finds a room full of children. One little kid asks him “what are we going to do” and Anakin pulls out his lightsaber! Anakin’s murder of children is totally the most unforgivable act and probably the moment when there’s no turning back from his Darth Vader destiny.
But now, the six-year-old child actor who played the Jedi youngling is all grown-up. But he’s not out for revenge on Hayden Christensen. Just hugs. It’s an Order 66 reunion!
On Tuesday, posting on his Instagram, actor Ross Beadman revealed that after 14 years he and fellow-actor Hayden Christensen hung out together at a convention in London this June. The Instagram caption of the photo read: “When you deadass hang out with the guy who murdered you,”
You can see an interview with Beadman and a subsequent meeting of the two actors the video below. It’s a hug that will bring balance to the Force.
