HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN (Anakin Skywalker) became an international film star when George Lucas cast him as Anakin Skywalker in the epic Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones. But it was the role of the troubled teenager in Irwin Winkler's 2001 drama Life as a House that brought Christensen his first critical acclaim, including an award for Best Breakthrough Performance from the National Board of Review and nominations for the Screen Actors Guild and the Golden Globe awards.

Christensen recently starred as disgraced New Republic journalist Stephen Glass in Shattered Glass, the first feature produced by his production company, Forest Park Pictures, in partnership with Cruise/Wagner Productions, Baumgarten/Merims Productions and Lions Gate Films. In April, he began production on The Decameron for De Laurentiis Productions on location in Italy.

Christensen broke into acting in an unusual way. His older sister, a Junior World Trampoline champion, had done a commercial endorsement for Pringles. The agent offered to sign Christensen as well, and at 7 years old, he began acting. By the time he was 12, he had a continuing role in the first Canadian television soap opera, the daily Family Passions.

Christensen was a regular on the Fox Family Channel series Higher Ground, and was featured in Sofia Coppola's acclaimed debut film The Virgin Suicides. His other film credits include Sarah Kernochan's All I Wanna Do and John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness.

Christensen was born in Vancouver, but his family later moved to the Toronto area, where he went to school and continues to reside.
