Mark Hamill Appears in Irish Pub Near Skellig Michael after Episode VIII Shoot, Without his Beard!

By: Dominic Jones

One of the few things we know for certain about Luke Skywalker's role in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens is that he will have a beard.  Now, one of the few things we can glean about his role in Episode VIII is that he won't have a beard.  Mark Hamill was spotted in a pub in Portmagee on the west coast of Kerry in Ireland, which is just a short boat ride away from Skellig Michael where shooting on Rian Johnson's 2017 sequel is taking place this week, and he was clean shaven. See the pictures below,

Steve Lynott described the scene in the Bridge Bar to the Irish Examiner saying,

"There was a great atmosphere in the bar last night as Luke Skywalker got behind the bar to give the lads a hand.  He was very generous with his time. Despite getting off the shoot late in the day, he stood for pictures and signed autographs for children and still had to get up early this morning for more filming."

Lynott also shot video of Hamill helping out at the bar, which you can check out for yourself below,

Based on this, it seems safe to assume that Luke Skywalker will be looking less disheveled and more Jedi Knight-ish in Episode VIII.  Either that or Mark shaved his beard as soon as he was done shooting and will grow it back for the rest of the shoot later this year/early next year.
