The Star Wars saga is well-known throughout the world and for some of the actors, these films really launched their careers.
A saga worthy of the stars
Over the years, Star Wars has become a real symbol of the science fiction genre. The first trilogy was released between 1977 and 1983 and showcased actors Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill. George Lucas’ little gem continued on its merry way between 1999 and 2005 with Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman and Liam Neeson. Finally, it made its grand return to the screens in 2015 with the latest episodes that are still being released today.
Although some of these actors managed to stand out and have since built a real career in film such as Natalie Portman and Harrison Ford, others weren’t able to shake the role that everyone knew them for, such as Carrie Fisher or Mark Hamill, and some have even disappeared completely from the world of Hollywood like Jake Llyod or Hayden Christensen.
After fleeting fame, some of the actors fell back into anonymity when others took a different path in life. Check out the images below of the actors who starred in one of our favourite childhood sagas.
