The best part was the light sabre fight with Ewan McGregor in Sith. Ewan is a great guy, I get on with him really well. We both have a great affinity for our light sabres – no pun intended – and we’d always spar when we had a spare few minutes. So when we got to Sydney to film Sith we argued them into letting us do the scene ourselves and really went for it – no stunt guys – and it works even though we were black and blue afterwards. It was like being nine years old playing your favourite game with your friend.
