Christensen is currently on location in Sydney, shooting Star Wars: Episode III,
which will be released in the summer of 2005.
Christensen broke into acting in an unusual way. His older sister, a Junior World Trampoline champion, had done a commercial endorsement for Pringles. As he recalls, "When she went to meet a talent agent, there was no one to baby-sit me so I went along for the ride." The agent offered to sign Hayden as well, and at 7 years old, he began acting. By the time he was 12, he had a continuing role in the first Canadian television soap opera, the daily Family Passions.
Christensen was a regular on the Fox Family Channel series Higher Ground, and was featured in Sofia Coppola's acclaimed debut film The Virgin Suicides. His other film credits include Sarah Kernochan's All I Wanna Do and John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness. Other television credits include Purple Haze and Free Fall.
Christensen was born in Vancouver, but his family later moved to the Toronto area, where he went to school and currently resides.
