Ghost of a chance...

Shaw played Darth Vader right at the end of 'Jedi' when Luke removes Vader's breathing apparatus and gazes upon his father for the first and last time.  Shaw also appeared as the ghost of Anakin Skywalker right at the end of the film, alongside Yoda and Obi-Wan.  However, when the original trilogy of films were digitally remastered in 2004, Shaw was replaced by Haden Christensen, much to the chagrin of the die-hard fans.
