The Surprising
Connection
Between
Darth Vader And
Ms. Marvel
By PAULI POISUO
Darth Vader and Kamala Khan might not particularly enjoy each others' company, but their actors have one very particular thing in common: As an Iman Vellani interview recently revealed, the two stars went to the same high school, though obviously not at the same time, given the age difference of the two actors.
"We take pride in Hayden Christensen," Vellani commented of their shared education. "He was in the same drama program that I did. After my news got out, my drama teacher was thriving. He taught Darth Vader and Ms. Marvel. How crazy is that?"
In case you want to keep an eye out for future franchise players who might emerge from the same program at some point down the line, the school in question is Unionville High School in Markham, Ontario. The school clearly takes pride in its famous students, seeing as it was quick to congratulate Vellani when her casting as Ms. Marvel was announced in 2020.
