Hayden Christensen is still waiting to hear if he'll get to wear Darth Vader's famous black costume in the third Star Wars film. The Canadian actor plays Anakin Skywalker in Attack Of The Clones, which offers glimmers of the character's eventual transformation into the villainous Vader. But Christensen says creator George Lucas has not told him how far the transformation will go in Episode III. He says, "I nag him every now and then about whether or not I'll get to wear the Darth Vader outfit, and he gives me a little wink- wink, nudge-nudge, that maybe I will." The actor has managed to try on Vader's helmet, just for fun, at Lucas' Skywalker Ranch. Christensen, 21, reveals, "Last time I was here, I went up to the archives and got shown around, and there was the dark helm. I asked if I could put it on and get a picture, which is pretty funny, because I'm wearing this gray track suit and had this enormous helmet on which is just completely disproportionate." Christensen has tried to pry more details about the next film out of Lucas, who begins shooting the third and final prequel next summer for release in 2005.
