Mark Hamill took to twitter to clear up the practical effects of one of the most memorable scenes in “Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back,” explaining exactly how Luke’s face ended up on Vader’s severed head in the cave sequence on Dagobah.
Hamill confirmed in a post that his real head was used in the helmet — popping up through an opening in the set floor: “It was my head protruding through an opening in the set floor as I stood below – My prop head was tested but rejected.”
