Mark Hamill's been through a lot playing Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, howeve, to the Star Wars legend, the most traumatizing scene that he's actually ever worked on has been in Lucasfilm's new Star Wars sequel trilogy.

Hamill just recently sat down with The Sunday Times to talk about his work on Star Wars: The Last Jedi and during his interview with the publication, the actor decided to open up about the most traumatizing scene that he's ever worked on – the ending of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Fans might remember how everyone was so excited to see Luke Skywalker to appear on the big screen again, however the Jedi only appeared at the very end of the Star Wars film installment.


"I thought, 'Oh, baby, I'm back! "And then the lightsaber flew to Rey. Are you kidding me? She didn't even do any training," Hamill jokingly grumbled. "I mean, it was a cliff edge. This was a cliffhanger, right? They should have stamped 'To be continued' on my forehead. I was in such a state of shock. I hate to seem to take it so seriously, but it was traumatising. My wife had gone to bed, and I woke her up, opened the last page and said, 'Look!'"

The actor's reaction might seem a bit too much, however Hamill was simply told by Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams to read the entire script after he trained to get back into shape to reprise his role as Luke. Imagine the frustration finding out that the workouts you've made all boil down to a few seconds on the big screen.

Luckily, Luke's going to have a much larger role in Lucasfilm's upcoming sequel, The Last Jedi.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres December 15, 2017.
