21. The actual relationships between Vader, Luke, and Leia were kept a secret from the cast during filming with Hamill only finding out shortly before shooting the scenes.
In both cases it wasn’t in the script to try to keep it a secret. I was told at the last moment just days before filming each scene.

22. An animal rights activist, Hamill is still steamed that his character maimed the wampa with his lightsaber in The Empire Strikes Back.
When filming scene I was assured my lightsaber swipe toward camera (creature not on set) would simply singe fur 2 scare him off-Horrified to later see amputation & unnecessary cruelty-Wampa was HUNGRY (not EVIL)-Luke would never do this! #StillAngry2017 https://t.co/QhIkOILZmw

23. One of the most emotional moments in the franchise between Luke and Leia was improvised by Hamill on the spot.
An emotionally charged day on set filming this because, knowing he was about to sacrifice his life for the greater good, Luke was saying goodbye… forever. The kiss was unscripted & spontaneous in the moment, summarizing his/my feelings in a way words could never have conveyed. https://t.co/l6Ap50WO8U
