What The Cast Of All 8 ‘Star Wars’ Movies Looked Like Before Getting Famous
Time comes for us all.
Wrinkles, crow’s feet, and laugh lines are nature’s way of saying, “you old.” Be that as it may, our lives are just a series of mistakes that we call life.
Now if that’s not pompous, meaningless drivel, I don’t know what is. Man, life is short.
Anyways, the Star Wars series has seen countless actors star in its many movies, but what did they look like before Father Time took over? Well, here’s what some of the cast members looked like before the snares of Hollywood’s vice grip told hold of them.
1. This is Princess Leia way back before Carrie Fisher had cinnamon buns on her ears.
2. Han Solo before he was a half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder Harrison Ford.
3. Then there’s baby Obi-Wan Kenobi, AKA Sir Alec Guinness, before he screwed up his student, Darth Vader.
4. This was little Luke Skywalker before Mark Hamill found out he was literally the center of the galaxy.
5. I know he’s undergone a species change, but this was Peter Mayhew before Chewbacca.
He looked like this!
6. This was the original man of swagger, Lando Calrissian, back when he was Billy Dee Williams.
7. Anthony Daniels was a suave-looking future C-3PO, who is the only character who has made it into all eight of the movies.
8. This was Darth Vader’s voice, but you might know him as James Earl Jones.
And what a menacing voice it was.
9. Kenny Baker was the sweet little R2-D2 way back in the day.
10. The female Luke Skywalker, Rey, loved her some hairspray.
11. This is John Boyega before he was Finn in Star Wars: Force Awakens.
12. This was Oscar Issacs before he was Poe Dameron flying around in his X-Wing.
13. This was the prequel version of Anakin Skywalker, Hayden Christensen.
14. This was Ewan McGregor WAY before he was a Jedi in the prequels.
15. Then there’s proto-baby-infant Natalie Portman before she hit it big.
16. Remember the crybaby Kylo Ren? This is what Ben Solo — I mean, Adam Driver — looked like before he was famous.
17. And of course, there’s the preppy Samuel L. Jackson before he was Jedi master Windu.
18. And what about Darth Sidious, who started this whole Star War in the first place? Here’s Ian McDiarmid before he was a Dark Lord of the Sith.
19. Grand Moff Tarkin, AKA the boss of the Death Star, shows up digitally in Rogue One but this is him as just tiny little Peter Cushing.
20. The star of the prequels, Jar-Jar Binks, was played by Ahmed Best.
21. The star of Rogue One, Felicity Jones, before she became Jyn Erso.
22. And the scene-stealer of Rogue One, Chirrut Imwe, back when he was tiny Donnie Yen.
23. And who could forget little Chewie lol.
Tell us if you could see the Force was always strong with them!
