He poses in the fictional Tatooine desert in his Star Wars garb for the photo. “Taken in Tunisia early morning Day #1 waiting for my 1st shot (emerging from home for robot auction)-Perhaps the very 1st #LukePic #StarWars,” the actor captioned.
Hamill has played the character since 1977’s Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. He most recently appeared at the end of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. He will play a role in the upcoming eighth installment of the series, titled The Last Jedi.
J.J. Abrams has already praised Hamill’s performance in the film, slated for release Dec. 15 of this year. “I think we are all going to be very upset if he does not win an Oscar, and no one more than Mark,” the producer said.
