Royal princes William and Harry are alleged to have got a spot, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a role and now it’s been confirmed that Mark Hamill has a secret second role.

As well as playing Luke Skywalker, Hamill also managed to bag himself the role of a CG character called Dobbu Scay.

After a recent Last Jedi screening, Hamill joined writer-director Rian Johnson as well as several members of the crew for a Q&A.

During the credits, Hamill is credited with more than one character and he was asked about it, as he said coyly.

‘I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m not telling. I like playing the mystery of it all,’ Hamill said.

As an accomplished voice actor, Hamill has hundreds of credits to his name on animated shows including as The Joker in DC’s Batman series and he asked Johnson for a CG character and ended up in the Canto Bright casino scene.

‘I said I’d love to do a CGI thing, and he said sure,’ he said.

‘And I got to go to the set of the casino and see in detail 150 extras in jaw-dropping costumes.’

While costume designer Mark Kaplan interjected: ‘200.’

It was then suggested, according to Entertainment Weekly, that Hamill’s Dobbu Scay character was an anagram for editor Bob Duscay.

To which Duscay said: ‘Could be.’

But it came as news to Hamill himself, as he said: ‘I thought he just shook up some Scrabble tiles and threw them on a table.’
