When he wasn’t sweating away in his character’s iconic costume, Hayden told E! News that he and the rest of the cast would practice their light saber skills. And practice certainly made perfect, as Ewan managed to master one of Hayden’s signature moves from the prequel films.

“Hayden developed one which is a spin behind the back and then in front. If you saw it, you’d recognize it,” Ewan told E! News, but Hayden confessed the trick wasn’t his to take credit for.

“That was a move that I remember seeing one of the stunt performers practicing when we were doing the prequels,” Hayden explained, “and I just thought it looked really cool. And so, that was sort of one that I took a liking to.”
