Sebastian Shaw

Sebastian Shaw (May 3, 1905 - December 23, 1994) was a film and stage actor born in Holt, Norfolk, England.

He began performing in 1913, and graduated to leading roles on stage in the late 1920s. He made his first film appearance in the 1930 movie Caste, and has appeared in over forty other productions.

In the fifth decade of his career, he played Anakin Skywalker in the 1983 film Return of the Jedi. For the 2004 DVD release the ghost of Anakin was replaced by Hayden Christensen, though Shaw stills plays Anakin/Vader for when he is unmasked.
