Star Wars Legend Announced For St. Patrick's Festival

Mark Hamill surprised fans at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival!

Mark Hamill, who once memorably posed with a packet of Tayto crisps and then a packet of King to balance things out when he felt he's upset certain people, will be the first International Guest of Honour at the St Patrick's Day Festival in Dublin.

Audiences were introduced to the beauty of Skellig Michael off the coast of Kerry in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" when Rey tracked down the long-lost Luke Skywalker, portrayed by Mark Hamill. Many of these have a special connection with Ireland and we want to celebrate and recognise this.

He then starts bashing in the windows of the auto , starting at the driver's side and working his way around the entire vehicle. Right away, we see a couple of people get in front of the vehicle and tell Lagutenko to stop while trying to open his doors.

Putting out a tweet, N.J can't have anticipated the response, with over 113,000 likes in just 5 days and a galaxy of Star Wars luminaries including Mark Hamill and Ashley Eckstein sending encouraging replies.

The festival's CEO Susan Kirby said they have been considering creating the role for several years. Since filming STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS in County Kerry, Mark has been a great ambassador for Ireland and it is unbelievable to have someone of such universal - even galactic - acclaim in this new honorary role. With this year's special guest, we will have an extra bit of magic for this wonderful showcase for an Irish welcome.

Hamill spoke with Variety recently after earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and he was asked who should play Luke Skywalker if there were going to be a movie that told us a story that we had yet to see about the farm boy turned Rebel hero. Scared of being teased by her classmates for wearing something that is considered "boys stuff", N.J chose to try something that would show her daughter that Star Wars is just as much for girls as it is for boys.

Johnson's discussion with Vanity Fair writer Joanna Robinson was crashed by none other than the Jedi himself, Mark Hamill, and the two got to talking about The Last Jedi, shedding a little light on their initial diverging opinions, and early discussions regarding Luke's character heading into production. In 1864, Frederick Mumford, a young English sailor was married in New Jersey to Mary Harvey, a recent Irish immigrant.

The parade will feature over 2,000 members of marching bands from across the country, floats, and performers, as it makes its way through the city.
