Hayden Christensen has praised Vivien Lyra Blair’s performance as young Leia in Obi-Wan Kenobi. Blair played a 10-year-old Leia Organa on the show, who ended up on an adventure across the galaxy with the titular Jedi Master.
“I was excited to see young Leia in this story and how she’s portrayed,” Christensen told E! News (opens in a new tab). “I think they really imbued the character with all the qualities that make him great. And young Vivien has done a great job of bringing him to life.”
He added: “For me, that’s been part of the fun, it’s just getting those little glimpses of Padmé, which I do have.”
Obi-Wan Kenobi recently concluded his 6-episode run on Disney Plus. Although there has been no confirmation of an Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy is definitely open to the idea.
“Well, frankly, we set out to do that as a limited series,” he said. But I think if there’s a big commitment and people really want more Obi-Wan, we’ll certainly consider it because the fans talk to us. And if we feel like, ‘OK, there’s a real reason to do this; is to answer why then, then we will. But we’ll see.”
We’ll have to wait and see if more Obi-Wan Kenobi make it to the screen, but Christensen may or may not return as Anakin Skywalker in the Ahsoka series, which is slated for release in 2023.
