Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Mark Hamill Reveals Secret Year-Long 'Agony' After Filming 'Empire Strikes Back'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

“Star Wars” icon Mark Hamill said on Twitter on Sunday that the end of filming for “The Empire Strikes Back” was especially tough on him ― because he had to keep one of the industry’s biggest secrets for more than a year. 

Hamill shared a behind-the-scenes image from the film’s climax, where he learns that Darth Vader is his father. He said a different line was spoken on the set to keep the plot twist a secret ― and that led to a year of “agony” as he had to keep it under wraps until the film’s premiere:

The cast & crew first learned of it when they saw the finished film. When we shot it, Vader's line was "You don't know the truth, Obi-Wan killed your father." Only Irvin Kershner, George Lucas & I knew what would be dubbed in later. Agony keeping that secret for over a year! ???? https://t.co/DcB2lW8AhC

Hamill went into more detail on keeping the secret to the BBC in a 2017 interview that included a pitch-perfect impression of Harrison Ford learning of Luke’s parentage during the film’s premier:

Hamill has been sharing his “Star Wars” memories all month on Twitter, often playing off the “May the 4th be with you” theme of Star Ways Day on May 4.
