A critic recently wrote of one actor that appeared in the SW saga that he/she:

Quote:
...has as much charisma as a paper plate.


Care to guess to whom the writer referred? I'll give you the url tomorrow.

I guess it's Hayden Christensen.

Hmmm...that would be my guess, except that there are a few actors/actresses that could also qualify. Dunno.

He's my favorite, but I still have to agree. Very Happy

Ah, I see. That one did cross my mind. I once heard him to referred to (and they meant Jake Lloyd, not Hayden Christensen...though I could see him more so) as Mannequin Skywalker.

Kind of hard to expect too much out of a child actor. I guess his role was a little bland. In my opinion Anakin should have spoke less and been more reserved with sharing his feelings and whining all the time. Not the ideal dark lord apprentice.

True, true. But I still think he was a pretty good actor, considering he was only 8 or whatever. And the dialogue he was given...so not his fault! Poor kid. I certainly couldn't have done better. Probably not even close.

Georgie Henley was only 8 when she did Wardrobe and she was amazing. Compared to her Jake Loyd wasn't great. But still good.

She had a better script to work with.

I was just thinking of Georgie Henley a few minutes ago in regard to this. Well...my sister did have the movie going. But she was excellent, tis true. Though, also, as DLB says, she had a much better script to work with. I doubt she could have said, "Yippee!" any better than Jake Lloyd.
