My two favorite characters of all time in Star Wars are Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Their relationship—or rather, the destruction of such—practically started the original Star Wars saga. And so, at the red carpet premiere of the third episode movie, "Revenge Of The Sith" I was keen on getting their autographs.
Hayden Christensen was relatively easy, even though he was technically the lead star of the film. Christensen, I would think even until now, is a humble actor. Despite leading one of the biggest movie franchises in the world at the time, he was always kind and polite to us fans. No matter how noisy we got, he always simply smiled and signed whatever we gave to him. And so I was confident that he'd sign my "Revenge Of The Sith" posters. Even though I brought a few and that probably annoyed him, he never let me feel uncomfortable about my fanboying!
Ewan McGregor, on the other hand, was a bigger star. At that point in his career, he already starred in cult classics like "Trainspotting" and "Moulin Rouge". So naturally, people were keener to get his autograph, myself included. I just had to have Obi-Wan sign my posters. I wouldn't have considered them worth anything had he not sign it (with all due respect to Christensen, of course). And so I had to shout his name louder than ever to get his attention.
Fortunately, despite his superstardom at the dime, McGregor was one to always make his fans happy. After waiting for what was possibly an hour of him going to other fans and posing for cameras, he eventually went to me. He gladly signed all of my posters and thought nothing of it. Well, it might have been nothing to him, but to have had Luke Skywalker's (and Anakin's too!) Jedi master sign my memorabilia got me over the moon!
That day, I braved several crowds, got drowned out by screaming photographers, and blinded by their camera flashes. And even despite waiting for hours in the excruciating heat, I'd still say it was an afternoon well-spent with Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi!
Please note: Our inventory is limited as we may have only received a few posters in total. Most of our items are obtained from film premieres, studios, and from autographed hounds such as the one in the story above.
