Mark Hamill Sporting Epic Jedi Beard - Discusses New STAR WARS Cast
I know some of you care about what Mark Hamill's facial hair will look like for Star Wars: Episode VII, and here's a photo that will answer all of your questions about that. He's followed in the footsteps of his Jedi master Obi Wan Kenobi, and he's sporting an epic beard that I'm sure helps in his ability to harness the power of the force… but not really. He's obviously growing this sucker out to bring some mature badassery to his character. He talked to the BBC recently about Star Wars: Episode VII, saying,
"It was certainly unexpected — I already had a beginning, middle and end, I never thought we'd come back. To go on to those sets that evoked so many memories, it is just astonishing.
"I thought even if they did a third trilogy, we wouldn't be involved, because it is really about the new generation of characters. We are just there to lend our support and grow contractually obligated beards."
He went on to talk about the new cast.
"They are so talented. They are all so diverse — there are people I recognize like Andy Serkis, and new people that I've never seen before, like Daisy Ridley. But they are so good. I'm thinking of asking them for advice; I don't want to give any myself!"
It's going to be so fun to see Hamill back as Skywalker!
