Okay. This is my first post.....please be kind! I bought the June edition of Arena Magazine (British) and in it is a great interview with Hayden. Of particular interest was when the interviewer asked him what kind of direction GL offered to him on this crucial scene. HC: "This was one scene where George and I were in conflict as to how it should be played. He wanted me to play it much stronger and not break down and show any real emotion until the very, very end and I was like - I don't know if I can do this, because the way I had been justifying playing these younger and more naive situations was the fact I had this scence coming up. It was very important for me that be breaks down and re-tells it in a really childish manner to justify his young sensibilities. His not breaking down wouldn't justify all those qualities. Because after he had done this horrific thing, how he explains it, and how he displays his immature qualities was very important to me. And so I compromised a little bit and he compromised a little bit and it was sort of a melding of the two, which was really neat, to have this sharing with him". I feel that the scene was played out correctly and that showing his emotions added to Anakin's immaturity in the movie. Showing no emotion would not have flown correctly with the way the character was played throughout the beginning of the movie. Any other thoughts or comments?
