Mark Hamill & Rian Johnson Talk 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' & Carrie Fisher at SXSW

Mark Hamill surprised fans at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival!

The 66-year-old actor, known for playing Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars film series, took the stage at the The Director and The Jedi premiere at Paramount Theatre on Monday (March 12) in Austin, Tex.

He was joined by Star Wars: The Last Jedi director and writer Rian Johnson.

The Director and The Jedi is an upcoming documentary about the making of the film, directed by Anthony Wonke, who was also in attendance.

“This is just a cameo at the end. I’m good at that,” Mark joked when he joined the discussion, according to THR.

When asked about what it was like giving direction to veteran actors Mark and the late Carrie Fisher, Rian laughed, “It’s a conversation – and in this case it’s a very intense conversation. I couldn’t say, ‘Screw you, this is my story,’ You have to get into the conversation.”

“She loved one-liners, she loved jokes,” Rian said about Carrie, who famously portrayed Princess Leia.

“It was hard for her to watch herself onscreen,” he added. “I remember her telling me, ‘In my head, I’m still in my 20s.’ There’s always going to be that disconnect when you see yourself onscreen.”
