Biography by Hal Erickson

On-stage from 1913 as a child actor, Sebastian Shaw graduated to leading roles in the late '20s. He made his first film appearance in 1930 and lasted six decades later. Maturing into character roles, he was willing to take on any assignment, including the experimental (and long-in-the-hopper) war drama It Happened Here (completed in 1966). Perhaps the best-known of Sebastian Shaw's later roles was Anakin Skywalker in 1983's Return of the Jedi.
