Biography

Canadian actor Hayden Christensen began appearing on film and television when he was only seven years old, and by his late teens had earned considerable buzz for his emotionally gripping performances in a series of critically acclaimed independent dramas. Following lackluster leads in big budget productions including "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones" (2002) and "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" (2002), the promising actor seemed to lose his footing. Despite his strapping physical appeal and ability to cry on cue, Christensen suffered from a string of critically lambasted thrillers while hoping to find a more successful niche to occupy life after 25.
