Hayden Christensen interview and BTS video for 90 Minutes in Heaven.

In this video interview for the movie 90 Minutes in Heaven, Hayden talks about his experience on the movie and getting to know "the" Don Piper in preparation for his role of portraying the Baptist minster. At the end of the video there is a behind the scenes video of Hayden and Don Piper speaking at the kick-off banquet for the movie. Even though this part of the video is silent, Hayden is particularly animated in the segment using a lot of hand gestures. Wish I could read lips and his sign language. Hayden looked very enthusiastic and happy to be there. You can watch the video below and look for 90 Minutes in Heaven in theaters on September 11, 2015 in the US and Canada.

Hayden about his portrayal of Don Piper

“I got to spend a lot of time with Don Piper, the actual Don, Hayden says with a smile. And it was a privilege and an honor. He was extremely generous with his time and I think really kind of took me under his wing, so to speak. He really gave me the tools I needed to play him and it was really special for me.

It wasn't that I ever wanted to do a Don Piper impersonation but it was very important to me that I get all the subtleties and nuances of who he is right, and be able to honestly capture what he was like at that time in his life, and try my best to inhabit the sort of pain and confinement of what he went through. But it wasn't possible without his guidance.

Don is referred to as the "Minister of Hope". I think that this is a story about hope and I hope that people will leave this film feeling uplifted and feeling better about life as I did when I put down the script the first time.”

Star Wars in True Detective Style.

See this creative Star Wars fan made video from Star Wars Minute which compiles scenes from all six Star Wars movies including Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker to recreate the credits of True Detective.

Anakin climbing the list of most popular baby names.

Hayden Christensen and Jake Lloyd both played Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars prequels. This year for the first time, the name Anakin has made the list of the top 1000 most popular baby names at No. 957 as documented by US Social Security Administration.

The name Anakin first appeared in George Lucas early draft of the screenplay for Star Wars in 1974. Obi Wan referenced Anakin as Luke's father throughout the original Star Wars trilogy. Finally in 2000 we were introduced to the character of Anakin Skywalker as a young slave boy on Tatooine in Episode I: The Phantom Menace played by Jake Lloyd. The story chronicles his rise and fall in Episodes II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith as portrayed by Hayden Christensen.

As the Chosen One, Anakin remains a central figure of the Star Wars saga and the quintessential and iconic villian Darth Vader and at the same time an eventual hero destined to bring balance to The Force. Source: Yahoo News

Epic Star Wars scene with Hadyen Christensen makes history.

Hayden Christensen very much wanted to be in the Vader suit when that scene where Anakin transforms into one of history's best known villains was finally filmed. He met every requirement to fit the suit including gaining 25 lbs for the role. It became one of the most memorable moments on the set as more than a 1000 cast and crew gathered to watch the filming of the now iconic scene.

““I went to go pick up Hayden in a golf cart [to bring him to the set] and he insisted to play this,” said McCallum. “He wanted to be in the suit.”

The scene was shot 10 days before principal photography on “Revenge of the Sith” wrapped, and McCallum recalls the incredible sight when he got to the set with Christensen.

“There were about a thousand people on the stage,” he said. “Everyone from the studio. We opened the stage doors and I let four hundred to five hundred people in, as many as we could get in. People were sitting on the floor. George did a couple of takes, Hayden got off [the set], and everyone just came up and touched him."

"Most of these people honestly had gotten into the film business because of ‘Star Wars,’" said McCallum. "It was just a great day.” .”
