Most days, you can find the man behind Luke Skywalker engaging with fans on social media, especially Twitter, answering questions, correcting rumors, and cracking the occasional dad joke.
Most recently, a behind-the-scenes photo of Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kershner and Stuart Freeborn, the creator of Yoda, popped up on Hamill’s feed. “Mark, @HamillHimself,” inquired a fan, “can you explain this picture?”
And as usual, the iconic actor answered with another witty display of insight on one of film’s most treasured franchises.
#EmpireStrikesBack director Irvin Kershner "touches up" make-up wizard Stuart Freeborn-sitting next to his famous puppet creation Yoda (who I think he resembles) Stuart kindly let me visit him whenever I wanted & even let me pour the foam into 1 of the Yoda head molds! #TrueStory https://t.co/Bf3gIPGirC
