L.A mansion of film producer Tove Christensen burglarized
Tove Christensen — the film producer brother of “Star Wars” actor Hayden Christensen — nearly came face to face with a burglar inside his Los Angeles home last week after being targeted in an attempted robbery.
According to reports, 39-year-old Tove Christensen — who produced his sibling’s 2003 drama “Shattered Glass” — was at home during the early hours of Tuesday when an unidentified male burglar used a rock to smash a window in his home, gaining entry to the Los Angeles mansion of the film producer.
Tove Christensen, who was not seen by the male intruder, promptly called the police to report the crime as he lay low. The authorities then rushed to Tove’s home, and when the male intruder — who was attempting to steal a guitar — subsequently ran off and dumped the instrument in the bushes after hearing police sirens. He managed to escape before police arrived at the scene.
Authorities have since launched an investigation into the burglary incident, although they have yet to name any suspects.
Tove Christensen has done both film producing and acting. He is best known for producing the film “Shattered Glass” in which his brother, Hayden Christensen, starred in working with actors Peter Sarsgaard, Chloë Sevigny, Rosario Dawson, Melanie Lynskey and Hank Azaria. Tove also produced “The Education of Charlie Banks,” which starred Jason Ritter and Jesse Eisenberg. He has acted in one film, “Without Limits,” which starred Donald Sutherland, Billy Crudup, Monica Potter, and Matthew Lillard, and in the hit TV show “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” in where he played a supporting character of a prom attendee who gets assaulted by “devil dogs” in which Buffy slays. Tove Christensen had one line in the episode and was billed only as “Tuxedo Boy.”
