ATTACK OF THE CLONES
Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominee, HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN (Anakin
Skywalker), broke into acting in an unusual way. His older sister, a Junior
World Trampoline Champion, was asked to appear in a Pringles commercial. When no
one was available to baby-sit the young Hayden, he joined his sister on a visit
to her talent agent where he was "discovered" and asked to appear in
commercials. By the time he was twelve, Christensen had a continuing role in the
first Canadian television soap opera, the daily hour-long Family
Christensen also appeared in Sofia Coppola's
Virgin Suicides, Strike and In
the Mouth of Madness. Most recently, he starred in Life
as a House. For his performance as the drug abusing
teenage son of Kevin Cline, Christensen was nominated for a 2002 Golden Globe
and Screen Actors Guild award. He has also starred in the TV movie Trapped
in a Purple Haze and the Fox Family Network series Higher
Currently, Christensen can be seen alongside Anna Paquin and Jake Gyllenhall
in London's West End revival of This Is Our Youth, a
play by Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count On Me and Analyze This).
