Mark Hamill Explains Why He Acts His Line Loudly During ‘I Am Your Father’ Scene Of Star Wars

Actor Mark Hamill, known for his role as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, answered a question from American television presenter Aaron Sagers about Star Wars and explained why he read his line aloud in one of his iconic scenes with Darth Vader.

In “I Am Your Father,” one of the last scenes of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (Episode V), Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, yells “no” after learning that Darth Vader is his father. and then he drops himself from high to low.

Aaron Sagers said that during the “I Am Your Father” scene, Mark Hamill’s voice was too loud when he shouted “no” and therefore he killed his voice. Mark Hamil took to Twitter to explain why.

Saying it’s crucial to warm up vocally prior to any demanding challenges, Mark Hamill explained that he didn’t hear anything due to the loud noise of the wind machines, and even said his words according to Darth Vader’s movements. He later said it was dubbed by the production.

Here’s what Mark Hamill said:

“It’s crucial to warm up vocally prior to any demanding challenges. FYI-In that scene- NOTHING could be heard over the deafening roar of the wind-machines. I spoke my lines based on Vader’s gestures, unable to hear a word he said. Everything was dubbed in later in post-production.”
