Sebastian Shaw

Sebastian Lewis Shaw (May 29, 1905 December 23, 1994) was an English film, television and stage actor.

Shaw was born in Holt, Norfolk, and educated at Gresham's School, where his father, Geoffrey Shaw, was a music master. He began performing in 1913, and graduated to leading roles on stage in the 1920s. His first season with the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre was in 1926 and he was a regular member of the company (by then the RSC) between 1966 and 1976, and again in 1985.

He made his first film appearance in the 1930 movie Caste, and subsequently appeared in over forty other productions. In 1983 he played Anakin Skywalker in the film Return of the Jedi. One of the controversies surrounding the 2004 DVD release of the film was that Shaw was replaced as the "ghost" of Anakin by Hayden Christensen, though Shaw is still the one shown as Anakin/Vader in the scene when Vader is unmasked, and is the only actor credited with the role in that film. In 2006, another DVD release featured the original version of Return of the Jedi, with Shaw restored as the ghost of Anakin Skywalker.

It was around the time of his appearance in Return of the Jedi that Shaw began a relationship with the mother of disc jockey John Peel; Peel commented on this in his autobiography, Margrave of the Marshes. Shaw had been married previously to stage actress Margaret Delamere from 1929 until her death in 1956. Shaw died on December 23, 1994 in Brighton, East Sussex, England.
