His character in Star Wars is renowned for turning to the dark side despite being hailed as a saviour.

It almost looks like reel life mirrors reality in this instance.

Remember the kid who played young Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace?

He was arrested after a high-speed chase with cops last June, reports UniLad.

The 26-year-old former actor, Jack Lloydd, was charged with reckless driving, failure to stop, resisting arrest and driving without a license.

But his mum revealed that he was diagnosed with schizophrenia.

He has since been moved from a prison to psychiatric facility.
