Earlier this week, UK's Mirror and several other UK gossip sites reported that Mark Hamill almost died on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but it seems the Force was with him, and those reports were false.

The 63-year-old actor, who's best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, took it to Twitter to deny the reports about his near demise.

Hamill elaborated in additional tweets, making it clear that nothing bad happened to him on the set of The Force Awakens.

That's good to know that nothing bad happened to Hamill. Expect to see him reprise his role as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will be released in theaters on December 18.
