Canadian actor Hayden Christensen, a tall, strapping blond with a loyal fan base, was beginning to carve out a respectable acting career for himself with supporting roles in television and a couple of entries into film when he shot to instant stardom, landing the much-coveted role of Anakin Skywalker in "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones" (2002). While the long-awaited announcement left some die-hard "Star Wars" fanatics unhappy and many a fellow up and comer disappointed, the little-known actor was poised to make the most of his opportunity and prove to be more than just a pretty face. His often emotionally jarring performances as bad boy Scott Barringer in the otherwise lackluster Fox Family Channel series "Higher Ground" made success in this regard seem entirely plausible, Christensen appearing capable of handling the darker aspects of his Darth Vader-in-the-making character.
