Trivia that mentions this person:
Batman Forever [1995]
  • Mark Hamill (who voiced the Joker in the [Batman] animated series) was briefly considered for Riddler.
    Godzilla [1998]
  • The first sequence of the AH64-Apache gunships hunting Godzilla through the streets references both Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back with the line "Echo 4 to Echo Base" and Star Wars with "He's right on my tail! I can't shake him!" Both lines were spoken by Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
    Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope [1977]
  • According to Mark Hamill, studio executives were unhappy that Chewbacca has no clothes and attempted to have the costume redesigned with shorts.
    Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back [1980]
  • Security surrounding this movie was so intense that George Lucas had regular reports about "leaks" from actors. George Lucas was so determined that the ending be kept secret that he had David Prowse (Darth Vader) say "Obi-Wan killed your father", and dubbed it later to be "I am your father". In fact, only six people knew about the ending: George Lucas, director Irvin Kershner, writers Leigh Brackett and Lawrence Kasdan, Mark Hamill, and James Earl Jones.
  • The Dagobah set needed to be elevated to give Frank Oz and three other puppeteers room to control the Yoda puppet from below. For proper interaction, Mark Hamill was given an earpiece so he could hear Frank Oz doing Yoda's voice. Mark Hamill reportedly had a hard time concentrating on his dialogue, since his earpiece occasionally picked up a radio frequency playing the Rolling Stones.
    Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back: Special Edition [2004]
  • When shooting on location in Norway, a fierce snow storm hit the hotel where cast and crew were staying. This would have normally halted filming, but director Irvin Kershner thought these weather conditions were an excellent opportunity to film the scene where Luke wanders through the snow after escaping the Wampa cave. He did this by sending Mark Hamill outside into the cold, while he and the cameraman stayed and filmed inside the hotel's front hall.

    Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens [2015]
  • Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Lawrence and [?] Shailene Woodley were considered for the role of Rey. Olsen refused the audition for the role because she already had a contract with "Marvel Studios" for the role of Scarlet Witch in the Avengers' franchise, and because the shoot dates for "The Force Awakens" overlapped with Age of Ultron. In April 2014, J.J. Abrams chose Daisy Ridley as Rey, to mimic the same type of selections made by George Lucas, with little known actors for the leading roles. In 1976, Lucas chose Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill for their respective roles of Princess Leia, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker.
  • In summer 2013, it was revealed both Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill had begun a vigorous regimen of diet, exercise and stunt training to prepare for their roles of Leia and Luke, respectively.
  • Mark Hamill claimed George Lucas nonchalantly told him over lunch a new [Star Wars] trilogy was going to be made by Disney, and if he did not want to be involved, Luke Skywalker would simply be written out of the script. However, Hamill immediately agreed to reprise the role. Hamill admitted, however, that he pretended to also be nonchalant about it so it didn't seem like he was excited for the role.
  • In a real-life parallel to the film Fanboys, Mark Hamill and John Boyega successfully lobbied director J.J. Abrams to allow [Star Wars] fan [?] Daniel Fleetwood to see the film before official release, as Fleetwood had been diagnosed with terminal cancer, and was not expected to live to see the film's actual release date. Fleetwood was shown the film at a screening in his home, after Disney agreed. Fleetwood died 10 November, 2015.

    Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi [2018]
  • Luke Skywalker bears a strong resemblance to Obi-Wan Kenobi's appearance in the original Star Wars trilogy. In fact, Mark Hamill reprised his role in 2015 at the age of 64, while Sir Alec Guinness was 63 when he was first cast as Obi-Wan Kenobi.
  • Daisy Ridley took her father to the set in Ireland, where the ending scene of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) was about to be recreated. When her father met Mark Hamill, he asked him, "Who do you play, then?" Ridley admitted she was not sure if her father was joking.
  • After reading the script for the film, Mark Hamill told director Rian Johnson, "I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you've made for this character [Luke Skywalker]. Now, having said that, I have gotten it off my chest, and my job now is to take what you've created and do my best to realize your vision." Hamill later stated that he had the utmost respect for Johnson and Episode VII and Episode IX director J.J. Abrams, and is pleased with how both films have turned out.
    Joker [2019]
  • Batman voice actor [?] Kevin Conroy expressed hope that Joker voice actor Mark Hamill could reprise the role in the film while DC Extended Universe Joker actor Jared Leto wanted to reprise the role as well.

Jackson), younger Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), older Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness via digitally altered archive audio), Yoda (Frank Oz), Adi Gallia ([?] Angelique Perrin), Kanan Jarrus (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson), and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

  • The Bow Tie Asymmetry: Mark Hamill does have a dog in real life, but it is not the dog used. His actual dog, who's named Millie and not Bark, was not allowed to be used per union rules.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story [2018]
