Obi-Wan Kenobi Actor Responds To Grand Inquisitor Fan Theory

Obi-Wan Kenobi star Rupert Friend has reacted to a popular Grand Inquisitor fan theory. The latest Star Wars series premiered on May 27 and follows Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) as he finds his way back to his Jedi identity 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith while watching over Luke Skywalker. When the safety of Anakin Skywalker’s (Hayden Christensen) other child, Leia Organa, is at risk, Obi-Wan struggles between doing what is right and staying safe from Darth Vader’s Inquisitors.

The head of this ruthless Inquisitor team is the Grand Inquisitor, portrayed by Friend. The character first debuted in animation in 2016’s Star Wars Rebels, where he became known as the cutthroat, Force-sensitive hunter of Jedi. Obi-Wan Kenobi provided the Grand Inquisitor with his first chance to step into the live-action galaxy, though his appearance has seemed to be shorter lived than expected. Following a few tense interactions with fellow Inquisitor Reva (Moses Ingram), the Grand Inquisitor is last seen in episode 2 of the series with a lightsaber run clean through his stomach. The character has yet to make a return, though a popular fan theory suggests that the blade only went through one of his two Pau’an stomachs.

Now, Friend has commented on this theory and the Grand Inquisitor’s fate as a whole. In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel Live! (via Star Wars News Net), the host spoke to Friend about his Obi-Wan Kenobi character. He most notably referred to this theory by reminding Friend that his character was “stabbed through the stomach,” to which the actor immediately responded, “One of them.” Kimmel goes on to point out that this is what most Star Wars viewers are pointing towards as evidence that the Grand Inquisitor will, in fact, survive.
