This week, Disney held a red carpet for Obi-Wan Kenobi in Toronto followed by a marathon of the entire show. I had the absolute pleasure of attending the carpet and getting to speak to Hayden Christensen and Deborah Chow.

If you’re a member of the press and want a good interview, then you’re gonna want to consider Deborah Chow. Not only is she very kind, but she gave some very insightful and fun answers to my questions. Check out our interview!

BSL: Hi Deborah! Before we start I just wanna say thank you so much for this show. I haven’t seen the finale yet because I’m gonna watch it here.

Deborah: *laughs* that’s a good way to watch it.

BSL: Really excited to watch it as I’ve loved everything so far. First question, how did it feel to work with Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen?

Deborah: I was so fortunate. Honestly, both of them are incredible actors but also incredible people. They know these characters so well and they were such a guiding force for me because they know them so intrinsically well and it was so helpful.

BSL: Was there an idea you had cut from Kenobi that you wish made it?

Deborah: We walked a lot of paths during the development. It’s a difficult story to tell because, you know, we’re obviously in between the two trilogies so of course, I wish we could’ve had more time to develop or do more with a lot of the characters but at the end of the day, you kind of have to focus it on the main things.

BSL: After working on some episodes of The Mandalorian, how did it feel to be approached for Kenobi?

Deborah: It was a surprise, honestly. I just finished The Mandalorian and I was just a few months out from it. But I was really grateful and I had an amazing time when I did Mandalorian and it was such a good experience so I loved the idea of getting to stay in the Star Wars galaxy.

BSL: Do you have any ideas for a potential second season of Kenobi and have you been approached for one yet?

Deborah: At this point, you know, it was conceived to just be one big story. Who knows what [Lucasfilm] will want to do in the future but really, for me, I’ve been on this for three years and I’m just looking forward to a vacation *laughs*.

BSL: Last question, how does it feel to be back in your hometown of Toronto for this event and to share the show with the fans?

Deborah: It’s great and for both Hayden and I, it’s so nice to be able to come home and have all our friends and our family here and just be back in Canada for the final show.

BSL: Thank you so much again for taking the time to talk. Can’t wait to see the final episode. Have a great day!

Deborah: Thanks and same to you.

Deborah Chow put so much blood, sweat and tears into this show and it’s clear. Deborah is a Star Wars fan, just like us. She clearly loves this franchise and it’s fans as after the 6 hour marathon ended, she walked around for about 20-25 minutes to talk to all the fans (she had some long conversations with some of them too), take photos with them and sign autographs. It was really sweet and it’s nice to see her give back some gratitude to some of these die-hard fans. Not only is she a great director, but she’s a great person too.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is streaming in it’s entirety on Disney+.
