“George [Lucas] likes to cast people that are so close to what he wants he doesn’t have to really get in there and give ya a lot of direction,” Hamill explained. “So Harrison walks in and he’s just too cool for school, I mean, instant idolization. Carrie was funny and witty and adorable. We just immediately hit it off, it was perfect,” he continued.

“Harrison had a really firm grasp of like the overview. I think he’d make a really good director if he weren’t so lazy,” the 67-year-old joked, adding, “We’ll edit that out later.”

Hamill then shared a story about shooting a scene from “A New Hope” with Ford directly after the classic trash compactor scene. “We hadn’t filmed that scene yet, and I’m looking in continuity and I said, ‘Well, wait a second, this is right after we got out of the trash compactor, shouldn’t my hair be all wet and matted with schmutz all through it?'” Hamill remembered.

“And [Harrison] turns to me and he says, ‘Hey kid, it ain’t that kinda movie,'” he said in a pitch-perfect Ford impression. “‘If people are looking at your hair we’re all in big trouble.'”

Hamill currently stars in History drama series “Knightfall”, and will also be seen in the upcoming movies “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” and “Child’s Play”.
