On This Day: June 25, 1979


By Ciaran Duggan,

Nathan Ellias Hammil, who is the son of Mark Hamill who played Luke Skywalker in the Original Trilogy, was born on this day back in 1979.

The 38-year-old actor appeared in George Lucas' first installment of the Prequel Films. He played two different background characters.

One of the characters was  a human male from Naboo, Rehtul Minnau. The Naboo male was the older brother of Teckla Minnau, who appeared in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated TV series.

The American actor also portrayed a podracing spectator who sat next to Watto during the iconic race sequence in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace.

Hamill also illustrated sketch cards for the Topps: Star Wars Galaxy Series 4 trading card set back in 2009.
