Christensen: 'I Won't Be Typecast

STAR WARS star HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN isn't scared of being typecast - despite the supposed 'curse' on previous stars of the sci-fi movies.

The 23-year-old actor takes on the legendary role of DARTH VADER in forthcoming film STAR WARS EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH.

Although CARRIE FISHER and MARK HAMILL, who starred in the original trilogy as PRINCESS LEIA and LUKE SKYWALKER, struggled to get work after the movies wrapped, Christensen refuses to accept the same frustrating fate.

He says, "I think it's a little dated, to be honest, the whole typecast thing.

"I think 20 years ago, 30 years ago, there was only one blockbuster that came out every few years, and so audiences got such a strong association with the actor and the role in the film. Now, there's four or five a summer."
