Sir Alec Guinness wasn’t exactly an unknown when they cast him as Kenobi.

I had never heard of him.

I mean I wasn’t even 1 year old yet but still. :neutral_face:

In the last years of his life Guinness griped that for an entire generation of moviegoers he was more likely to be remembered for his supporting role as a Knight of the Jedi Order in (what he considered) a schlocky sci-fi franchise rather than being remembered for the lifetime of achievement on stage and screen that earned him an actual Knighthood in the British Empire.
