    I'm nerdy enough to know Bob Anderson donned the black helmet and played Vader during the lightsaber fight scenes in Empire and Jedi, but I didn't know his face appeared onscreen during either movie.

    Well, turns out he also played a Rebel commander in Norway.

    Although his voice was dubbed over in the movie, that's Bob Anderson, fencing legend, Olympic athlete, fight scene choreographer, and the stuntman who battled Luke Skywalker in two of the three original trilogy movies.

    Oh, the time I waste on the Internet!

    Shameless bump.

    Have any other actors played both a light side and dark side character in the same trilogy?

    Does Dannl Faytonni count as dark side? He was at least somewhat evil. :D

    Hayden Christensen and Adam Driver did! lol

    I'm guessing you meant different characters but I couldn't help it.
