Mark Hammil: 'Luke could be gay'

Mark Hammil: 'Luke could be gay'

Mark Hammil has opened the door to the closet, and is imploring Luke to step out. He believes it is down to the the fan's interpretation.

"I just read online that JJ is very much open to that," Hamill said. "In the old days, you would get fan mail. But now fans are writing and asking all these questions: 'I'm bullied in school... I'm afraid to come out.'"

He added: "They say to me: 'Could Luke be gay?' I'd say it is meant to be interpreted by the viewer. If you think Luke is gay, of course he is. You should not be ashamed of it. Judge Luke by his character, not by who he loves."

"When I talk about inclusivity, it's not excluding gay characters, it's about inclusivity, so of course," he said. ""To me the fun of Star Wars is exploring the possibilities, so it seems insanely narrow-minded to say that there wouldn't be a homosexual character in that world."

Well, maybe it is a world from the future after all. Refreshing to read.
