>> jimmy: you were straight out of high school, right? >> yeah, i was in high school a year before doing school plays and -- >> jimmy: where were you in canada? >> yeah, i was living in vancouver at the time, and it was a long audition process. and i was renting an apartment with a friend of mine. and he knew i was up for this role and was going to be finding out soon and i got the call i was, you know, shocked and in disbelief and i remember walking to the living room just with this big smile on my face and he kind of put the dots together, but to confirm it for him, you know, i lit up an imaginary lightsaber >> jimmy: yes! >> he got it >> jimmy: you're like -- >> he was a big fan too. he had the "star wars" soundtrack and he put the duel of the fates on, and we had a whole lightsaber battle, sort of jumping around our apartment just screaming like giddy little kids. >> jimmy: excited. that's what it's all about
it's so cool >> it's amazing. >> jimmy: all these years later now, you're in the new "obi wan kenobi." you get to really full on darth vader, and we had you and mcgregor on the show a couple weeks ago. and he said when he first saw you as darth vader, he was frightened, he actually -- he was actually scared. and he was like, "i felt like actually really frightened." everyone on set too. did you feel that when you wear the costume and you dress as darth vader? >> yeah. i mean, you know, it's an amazing costume to get to put on it's an honor to get to wear it but definitely the best part is just seeing people's reaction when they see vader. [ laughter ] and you have like -- >> jimmy: is it easy to see out of those eye things? >> no, i mean, it's very limited visibility but when someone does sort of come across your field of vision - >> jimmy: they're frightened >> you see the sort of the change in their demeanor, you know [ laughter ] like, people are usually very confident, become a little more timid and shy. >> jimmy: yeah, i wanted to ask because you're the only person i can ask. does it get hot? >> it's so hot, yeah
you're sweating buckets in it the whole time >> jimmy: you are, right >> yeah, yeah. but they actually have like an undercomponent to the suit where if you get too hot, they plug you into this machine and it pumps cooling liquid all around your body to sort of cool you down. >> jimmy: really >> yeah, which again sort of like aids to the whole feeling like you're this mechanical creature relying on this mechanism to keep you going. >> jimmy: that's good to know. how about -- by the way, your beautiful little daughter, seven. does she know that daddy is darth vader? >> she knows daddy's darth vader. she's never seen daddy as darth vader. i'm still waiting a little bit until that happens >> jimmy: you can probably show her -- >> i might show her the prequels soon. >> jimmy: yeah >> but still, there's some stuff -- >> jimmy: because it's still daddy. >> -- we might have to fast forward through. >> jimmy: yeah that's true yeah does she have a lightsaber >> we have a couple lightsabers kicking around the house and actually, she was my first lightsaber training partner when i came back to the "obi wan" show.
[ audience aw's >> jimmy: that's what i'm talking about, buddy the series finale begins streaming wednesday. i don't want to give away any spoilers for anyone out there who's watching the show and not caught up. it's very interesting doing a talk show when you're not really allowed to talk about anything [ light laughter ] it happens a lot and even when it's out, like, it's been out and things are out for years and they go don't mention what is happening and i go so just in case but this is fresh. as of wednesday. what can we say about the finale >> again, not a lot without spoiling anything.

i'll see you later, alright? ♪ ♪ mmmm (children's laughter) ♪ ♪ that is so cool! good job! ♪ ♪ hey!! how're you doing? it's so good to see you! there's a different way to treat hiv. it's every-other-month, injectable cabenuva. for adults who are undetectable, cabenuva is the only complete hiv treatment you can get every other month. cabenuva helps keep me undetectable. it's two injections, given by a healthcare provider every other month.
it's one less thing to think about while traveling. hiv pills aren't on my mind. a quick change in my plans is no big deal. don't receive cabenuva if you're allergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines, which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions, post-injection reactions, liver problems, and depression. if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms, stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects include injection-site reactions, fever, and tiredness. if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. every other month and i'm good to go. ask your doctor about every-other-month cabenuva.
