Although . very close to the set of attack of clones and of revenge of the SithBoth the actors let themselves be overwhelmed by their individual schedules and lost sight of each other. “We met for episodes II and III, which were filmed in Australia, so we were both away from home. As a result, we spent a lot of time training together, filming together, but also outside work, because we were so far away each other. In short, we were close. And then over the years, I think over time, we kind of got lost with each other. I hadn’t really seen Hayden in years. So when I saw him again and was able to talk to him about this project, it was very exciting. it was very nice.”
