Hamill Reveals How Filmmakers Put Luke’s Severed Head in Vader’s Helmet

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.”

Hamill next appears as Luke Skywalker in “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” due in theaters on December 15, 2017.
