His Star Wars crew apparently didn’t think much of this strange then-new sci-fi project, but Mark Hamill was duly impressed enough to hang on to a photo that the actor now suspects might be the first shot of him in character as Luke Skywalker. “Taken in Tunisia early morning Day #1 waiting for my 1st shot (emerging from home for robot auction),” Hamill tweeted today. “Perhaps the very 1st #LukePic.”
Asked by a Twitter follower what he was thinking when the snapshot was taken – “This is gonna be my big break” or “Crap, it’s early, dusty and way too bright”? – Hamill responded, “Judging by my clueless expression, probably both.
