Guess Which Actor Is Guest Of Honour At St Patrick's Festival!

Actor Mark Hamill talks with actor Harrison Ford and filmmaker George Lucas after unveiling his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles California U.S

He said as much at SXSW during a screening ofThe Director and the Jedi, a new documentary based on the making of The Last Jedi.

The cat is out of the bag for Mark Hamill, known for his iconic role as Luke Skywalker in the sci-fi mega, Star Wars, who shamefully starred in the film's German parody - clad in a striking gold jumpsuit, while singing in German.

A behind-the-scenes video clip from the set of The Last Jedi was posted on the Star Wars Legacy Twitter account, showing Mark Hamill getting emotional at the sight of his old friend Yoda and the legendary puppeteer behind him, Frank Oz.

Hamill said it would be great to see Stan playing a younger Luke. I couldn't say, "Screw you, this is my story", You have to get into the conversation'.

The special guest is chosen each year for their special connection or affinity with Ireland, with Mark being selected because of his love for the country and also as he recently filmed scenes for "Star Wars" in Ireland.

The initial tweet got over 40,000 retweets and almost 95,000 likes from women and men from all walks of life, including "NASA scientists, screenwriters, fandom queens and Luke Skywalker himself", she said. That's especially true after they had to wait almost the entire length of Star Wars: The Force Awakens before seeing him pop up in the revival of the sci-fi saga. All he was doing was bulls eyeing wamp rats in his T-16. "He is extremely enthusiastic about everything that he does, and that's exactly what I was looking for when I was looking for Luke Skywalker".

There's a roughly 30-year gap between the end of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Many of these have a special connection with Ireland and we want to celebrate and recognise this.
