Actor described the cameo as ‘my only silent movie’
Die akteur, who played Jedi knight Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, was one of several franchise veterans to return for the recent sequel series.
Egter, terwyl The Force Awakens centred around the search for Luke Skywalker, Hamill’s character did not appear until the very end of the film, and did not speak a word.
The Twitter account for Bad Lip Reading – a YouTube channel which creates comedic videos of poorly overdubbed film scenes – shared a video earlier this week, in which Hamill can be heard impersonating Harrison Ford in a dubbed-over “deleted scene” from The Force Awakens.
Hamill responded to the tweet today (7 Mei), skryfwerk: “Listen as @BadLipReading gives me, not only a chance to dub Harrison, but more lines than I had in the actual film.”
He finished the post with the hashtag: “#EpVII_MyOnlySilentMovie.”
Terwyl The Force Awakens may have almost entirely marginalised his character, Hamill was subsequently given a central role in its 2017 follow-up, The Last Jedi.
Hamill is a vocal and active presence on social media. He recently revealed to fans which Star Wars moment still makes him “cringe every time” he watches it.
