It looks like Mark Hamill didn't just play Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

The Star Wars legend recently reprised his role as Luke Skywalker in Episode IX, appearing as a Force Ghost in the third and final sequel trilogy entry. Now, there's a new post revealing that Hamill played a second role in The Rise of Skywalker.

According to a post by Culture Crave, Hamill actually lent his voice talent at the very start of the movie, voicing the role of Boolio, an alien who provides secret information to the Resistance right before he pays with his own life.

Fans might not have noticed Hamill's secret role at first, but that's because Boolio's voice artist is listed under the name Patrick Williams in the The Rise of Skywalker's official credits. What most fans don't know is that Patrick Williams is a pseudonym that the Star Wars legend has previously used.


"And if I did have billing, in the past as a pseudonym I've used a combination of my brothers' names, and I call myself Patrick Williams," the actor previously told Cinema Blend.

Hamill really had his work cut out for him in The Rise of Skywalker. Then again, Luke Skywalker didn't have too many scenes in the film. Hamill had all the time to play an extra role in Episode IX.
