Hayden Enjoys It When People Sees Him As Darth Vader

Hayden gave an interview on Jimmy Fallon’s show where he talked about the character that he played in Star Wars. 

He began the interview and recalled the memory of when he and Jimmy worked in a movie together named Factory Girls.

Hayden played the character based on Bob Dylan, and one time when Jimmy impersonated Bob, he was amazed. 

He was so impressed with Jimmy’s acting that he thought Jimmy would be perfect for his character. 

After that, Jimmy congratulated Hayden on his show Obi–Won Kenobi. He plays his Star Wars character, Darth Vader, in the series. 

Hayden is famously known for his portrayal as Anakin Skywalker or Darth Vader from Star Wars. 

He said that he had just gotten out of high school when he auditioned for the role. 

He was living in Canada, renting an apartment with his friend. The audition for Anakin's role was very long, but luckily, he received a call saying that he got the role. 

He was so happy that he walked out of his room with a big smile to share the news with his friend. 

He then opened up about people freaking out when he puts on the Vader’s costume. 

Many of his fans and his own co-stars said that Vader makes him freaked and nervous. 

Hayden said that he loves wearing Vader’s costume, and he actually feels really honored that he got to put on the costume, but what makes him feel better is to see people's reactions when they see him as Vader. 

He just enjoys that a lot. Vader’s costume is very heavy, and it’s all closed, so he gets very sweaty when he is in the costume.

But if he feels too hot, then there is an under component of the suit, and from there, cooling air is passed so they could feel better.


Briar was born on October 30, 2014, and her current age is seven.

Net Worth 

The net worth of Hayden is $12 Million. His source of income comes from being an actor and producer.
