On This Day: July, 25, 1969


By Ciaran Duggan,

James Arnold Taylor, the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, was born on this day in 1969.

The 48-year-old voice actor is the only actor (voice or otherwise) to have portrayed Obi-Wan Kenobi more than four times in various Star Wars media.

He has even been considered an official "audio double" for Ewan McGregor, who played the Jedi Master in the Prequel Trilogy.

The American actor has vocally portrayed Obi Wan in both the Clone Wars 2D Clone Wars animated micro-series and the 3D Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated film and TV series, as well as in several Star Wars video games.

James reprised his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the series premiere of Star Wars: Rebels and in season three of the series. He voiced Kenobi in hologram form.

This year the Clone Wars veteran has piloted a new YouTube series called Clone Wars Conversations, which features interviews with former Clone Wars voice actors each and every week.

 But perhaps equally as important who can forget that James reprised Obi Wan in the current Star Wars Underworld intro.
