For many a Star Wars fan, Mark Hamill remains a legendary figure.
After all, this is the guy who portrayed the young but heroic Jedi-in-training, Luke Skywalker, in the original trilogy. They’ve been with him through the notorious X-Wing-Death Star Chase, the Battle of Hoth and the moment he helped guide Darth Vader back to the Light side.
And to top it all off? Hamill is actually a pretty solid guy (but he’s also the Joker, too. So watch out).
On the 68-year-old actor’s beloved Twitter feed yesterday, he reminisced about the original Star Wars trilogy as he so often does. He responded to a fan’s question, which reads: “Hi Mark, is there any actor in Star Wars you would have liked to share a scene with but didn’t get the chance ?”
To this, Hamill responded: “From Peter Cushing on, every single one of them. Imagine the fantastic Sequel Trilogy actors & only working with two of them!”

In the past, Hamill has expressed admiration for Cushing, particularly due to the aforementioned actor’s role in the Hammer films. Additionally, you can see in his various interviews promoting The Last Jedi that he maintains a good rapport with the sequel trilogy’s cast.
Unfortunately, given his script and role in the sequel trilogy, he wasn’t able to work with many of those talents. At the very end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and most of The Last Jedi, his character is restricted to the island on Ahch-To and only interacts with Rey. It isn’t until his supernatural apparition appears near the end of the film that he comes face-to-face with Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren.
While he worked with two of the trilogy’s biggest stars, he never got to work with the likes of John Boyega or Gwendoline Christie. However, he did share a brief scene with Oscar Issac in The Last Jedi, even if he wasn’t the main focus. So, technically, that meant he worked with three of the sequel trilogy’s actors, right?
Are you bummed that Hamill didn’t get to work with the rest of the sequel trilogy’s cast? Or did you think the new Star Wars movies turned out well regardless? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
