Before taking on the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the famous actor Sir Alec Guinness had experience acting in Shakespeare. And, by all accounts, he despised it. Guinness lamented in a letter to pals acquired by Mashable that "new crap speech arrives me every other day on bits of pink paper—and none of it makes my persona apparent or even palatable." Furthermore, Guinness recounts meeting a teenage admirer who begged for an autograph and stated he'd seen Star Wars a hundred times in an account revealed in his autobiography, A Positively Final Appearance. He consented to sign the child's autograph on the condition that he never watch the movie again.
