Jake Lloyd played Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars almost 10 years ago, but apparently, the film left a lasting mark on his social life. He was constantly questioned about his role.
Some people even made fun of him by saying that he had ruined the prequel. Lloyd says that this behavior persisted through high school and also college. Although he had fun during the shoot, he admits know that going back and looking at the movie feels “creepy.”
He’s now making his way through film school, and the movie royalties aren’t doing as much to help him as you would expect. He hopes that after college he can, in his own words, “work.” Well Jake, may the force be with you.
