Obi-Wan Kenobi's Rupert Friend Reveals New Details About Grand Inquisitor

In addition to collaborating with Harold and director Deborah Chow, Friend trained with stunt coordinators, who he described as “the best in the world.” 

“These are master, master swordsmen, masters of pretty much all the martial arts you could imagine rolled into one,” Friend said. “So there’s almost a balletic quality about it that I find very, very beautiful.”

The actor added that he doesn’t think lightsaber battles can be compared to other fights, saying, “It’s not two guys brawling in a bar.”
