" Your swords, please. We don't intend to make a mess of points before the Chancellor." – Matter Dooku
In Vengeance of the Sith, there's an early scene where Obi-Wan Kenobi as well as Anakin Skywalker battle Matter Dooku in an attempt to rescue Supreme Chancellor Palpatine from the clutches of the Sith Lord. In shooting the scene, they had star Christopher Lee for only one day. At the time, the collection was still 6 weeks far from being built, so they shot all of the close ups of his dialogue against a bluescreen. Carrying out as much of the lightsaber battle as he can himself, a lot of the shots in the final series are of Lee's stunt double, Kyle Rowling. In order to place Lee's face on Rowling's younger body, Industrial Light & Magic took extremely specific photos and a check of Lee's head, creating a digital variation of Dooku that they added in later.
