Ewan McGregor dropped his lightsaber in a ditch while shooting ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’.
The 50-year-old actor – who has reprised his ‘Star Wars’ alter ego for the title role in the new Disney + series – was horrified to fumble his weapon when filming with co-star Moses Ingram and was particularly concerned Hayden Christensen didn’t find out about the mishap because he used to “give him such s***” for not controlling his prop properly when shooting the prequel movies in the early 2000s.
Speaking about the 75-foot-wide, 23-foot-high virtual LED set, Moses told Entertainment Weekly magazine: “I forget what scene we were shooting but Ewan was doing something, and he dropped his lightsaber in the crevice between the Volume and where the stage ends. And he was so embarrassed. He was like, ‘Please don’t ever tell anyone I dropped my lightsaber!’ ”
Ewan insisted: “You mustn’t listen to it It’s all hearsay and rumour. She’s just trying to one-up Obi-Wan.”
