MARK Hamill had film fans laughing when he revealed it took him 20 attempts to land on Luke Skywalker when he tested out the the popular, ‘Which Star Wars character are you?’ filter.

The actor played lightsaber-wielding Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy of the 1970s and ’80s, before reprising the role for 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi and 2019’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Trying out the latest filter on Instagram, the 68-year-old initially convinced his social media followers that he had landed on his Jedi character in one go.

And although the sci-fi actor looked surprised in the short clip, he hilariously admitted it took him 20 attempts to get his character.

He penned: “What are the chances I would get THIS guy? Never tell me the odds….. (#ItActuallyTookMeMoreThan20Tries)”.

Hamill’s social media post comes as it was revealed that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has amassed nearly $1 billion at the box office worldwide.

The film has taken in $479.4 million at the domestic box office and $517.1 million from overseas markets, bringing in a total of $996.5 million worldwide.

Despite the impressive figures, The Rise of Skywalker doesn’t compare to 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi takings, which brought in $1.332 billion worldwide.

While 2015’s The Force Awakens outweighs both the 2019 and 2017 films having taken in $936.6 million at domestic box office and $2.068 billion worldwide.

Recently, the Californian actor told his fans he had quit Facebook and blasted shifty CEO Mark Zuckerberg for valuing “profit over truthfulness”.

He wrote on Twitter on Sunday: “So disappointed that #MarkZuckerberg values profit more than truthfulness that I’ve decided to delete my Facebook account.

“I know this is a big ‘Who Cares?’ for the world at large, but I’ll sleep better at night. #PatriotismOverProfits”.

It’s not clearly what prompted the father-of-three to quit Facebook.
