Mark Hamill Talks About Filming His Scene With Carrie Fisher In 'The Last Jedi'

By: Dominic Jones

One of the most anticipated moments in Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the reunion between Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa.  The moment already carried great meaning for fans because the characters hadn't been on screen together since 1983, however it was made even more impactful when Fisher passed away in 2016.  Hamill spoke about filming the scene in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight's Ash Crossan.

Hamill said about the scene,

"I can't watch that scene. It's just, you know, takes me out of the movie completely. I'll get over it, but she'll be forever missed and she's irreplaceable."

He also shared that Luke kissing Leia on the forehead at the end of the scene was not in the script and something he came up with on the day of filming.  Hamill said,

"I didn't decide it and say, 'Can I do this?' I mean, in the take -- I don't know if we rehearsed it or not, but it just happened. I was standing up and they weren't ready for it. They said, 'No, do that again.' And we did it for a second take, and like I said, it was just spontaneous.

You can see Hamill talk about the scene, as well as filming his scenes with Yoda and R2-D2 in the video below,
