Mark Hamill surprised fans at the SXSW Film Festival when he turned up alongside Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson on Monday.

A behind-the-scenes video clip from the set of The Last Jedi was posted on the Star Wars Legacy Twitter account, showing Mark Hamill getting emotional at the sight of his old friend Yoda and the legendary puppeteer behind him, Frank Oz.

Ok so the photograph is a dead obvious giveaway but for those that don't recognise this man (shame on you!), Mark Hamill has been named as guest of honour for the inaugural St. Patrick's Festival 2018. "We're looking forward to welcoming him back "home" to celebrate our national holiday and St. Patrick's Festival with us". The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is working on a new trilogy outside of the traditional Skywalker saga and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are working on another series of movies outside of both those arenas. IMDB has an extended preview of the documentary, emphasizing the effort it took to bring the latest Star Wars adventure to life.

Mark also has family links to Ireland as his great-grandmother Elizabeth Keating was born in Kilkenny in the 1800s.

A second family line connects Mark to the Harvey family, possibly from Donegal, who were starvation immigrants that settled in America. "The Force" will be strong at this weekend's Saint Patrick's Day Parade.
