Son of Luke Skywalker on Star Wars set
Starwars.com recently released a collection of Mark Hamill’s (who played Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars movies) of funny family photos from the set of Return of The Jedi.
The cute boy in the pictures is Nathan Hamill, the son of Mark and Marilou Hamill. He was born during the shooting of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, in Finse, Norway. Marilou was well into her pregnancy when she accompanied her husband to the location, and expecting a premature birth they brought medical supplies with them. He came into the world early in the morning of the day his father was meant to play a scene in which Luke manages to grab onto an electronic weather vane after emerging from the underside of Cloud City. Despite being up all night, Luke Skywalker was on time for the shoot.
