"Last Summer we had the opportunity of a lifetime to play Young Jedis in @obiwankenobi. A small part, but such a huge honor and a cherished memory for life. Dudes! … we are legit Jedis! (Been waiting a year to yell that out)"
―Jonathan and Oliver Ho on Instagram[1]

Jonathan Ho is martial artist who, along with his twin brother and fellow martial artist[2] Oliver Ho, played a Jedi Youngling in the TV series Obi-Wan Kenobi.[3] The two filmed their part in the summer of 2021,[1] and got to meet and have scenes with Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen. The part where Obi-Wan Kenobi finds the remains of their character preserved in stasis in "Part IV" required wire work.[4] Although it does not show very well on-screen, the two wore special make-up to transform their character into a Theelin with tiny horns and spotted, mottled skin.[5]
