I can hear the words clear as day as if it’s 2005 again… “Master Skywalker, there are too many of them!,” the youngling adorably mutters to Anakin Skywalker before the now-evil Jedi releases his lightsaber for the kill. Sors Bandeam was the infamous youngling killed by Anakin in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. The young character was played by Ross Beadman, who was just 6-years-old when he filmed the scene with Hayden Christensen. According to the Star Wars news site, Fantha Tracks, Beadman was finally reunited with the man who killed him onscreen (see video above).
During a Comic-Con at Film New Forest last month, Beadman was asked what it’d be like to be reunited with Christensen, and he joked that it’d be time for a little “payback.”
“This time it’s personal,” he said. “I’d definitely walk up to him an give him a little hi, say, ‘you probably don’t remember me, but this is what we did, you killed me.’”
Well, it only took a month for the reunion to happen. London Film and Comic Con took place over the weekend, and both Christensen and Beadman were in attendance.
“How you doing, brother?,” Christensen asked with a wide smile as the two embraced.
They snapped a photo together, which Beadman shared to his Instagram stories. You can check the image out in the video above or on his Instagram page (the story is saved as “Fate” in his highlights).
“When you deadass hang out with the guy who murdered you,” he joked in the caption.
