It remains to be seen whether the young actor will survive the typecasting that a similarly unknown Mark Hamill suffered some two and a half decades prior, in Episode IV.
Before Episode II made it to the screen, Christensen won accolades -- including a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor -- playing a troubled goth teen in the family melodrama Life as a House.
Hayden Christensen made headlines in the spring of 2000, when director George Lucas announced that the 19-year-old actor would play the much-coveted role of Anakin Skywalker in Episode II and Episode III of the venerable Star Wars franchise.
Born in Vancouver but raised in Toronto, Canada, Christensen became involved with Canadian television productions at a young age and carried his skills over to American TV movies and series in the late '90s.
The audience knows one thing that Anakin doesn't, however.
We already know that if Darth answers it will be as 'good' Anakin.
The franchise has a strong history of Force ghosts popping up at critical moments, whether as a wise voice or benign spirit.
What this controversial and selective alteration does do, however, is open up the door for Hayden to return in The Last Jedi and Episode IX.
With the loss of his father, Han Solo and the removal of his mother, Leia, precipitated by Carrie Fisher's shock death, Kylo Ren is in dire need of some family guidance.
Even before the final Star Wars prequel Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, Christensen began moving on as an actor, taking on more meaty character roles, like real life journalist Stephen Glass in the thriller Shattered Glass, and a fictional stand-in for Bob Dyaln in 2006's Factory Girl.
He would als make a name for himself in thrillers like Jumper, Vanishing Point, and Takers.
