OBI-WAN KENOBI's Darth Vader Stuntman Shares Awesome New Behind The Scenes Video And Photos

Tom O'Connell donned Darth Vader's iconic costume for many of the show's action scenes, and he's now shared some amazing behind-the-scenes footage and photos from the epic, unforgettable lightsaber duels.

Obi-Wan Kenobi's final episode saw the title character go to war with Darth Vader in one of the Star Wars franchise's most epic lightsaber battles (if not the most epic). 

Showing Obi-Wan fully connected to the Force and at the height of his powers, the fight delivered some iconic moments, including a haunting exchange between "Ben" and Anakin Skywalker when the Sith Lord's helmet was cracked open. Behind the scenes, it was stuntman Tom O'Connell who saw action as Darth Vader, and he's now shared a tonne of behind-the-scenes content. 

As you can see below, we get an awesome behind-the-scenes video showcasing their lightsaber duel, along with shots of O'Connell having fun when the cameras weren't rolling...and sweating an awful lot! 

Disney+ has yet to announce a "Disney Gallery" special exploring the making of Obi-Wan Kenobi, but we're hoping for lots more content like this when that does drop. Hayden Christensen's may not have been in Vader's suit on these occasions, but he spent a lot of time in there, so seeing how that final exchange was shot - along with the rest of this battle - will be amazing.
