Star Wars: Episode VIII’s Skellig Michael filming ends with a shave and a beer?

Mark Hamill was seen in Ireland having a good time last night over at Joe.IE:


Colm Flynn and Jonathan Lambert snapped this pic with Mark Hamill:


The interesting part is that his beard isn’t around. The rumors we heard was principal photography on Star Wars: Episode VIII is to begin in the later half of January. So if Hamill finished his filming yesterday, he probably shaved and went out to celebrate. There is a chance he doesn’t have a beard in VIII but it seems more likely he has an extended break and didn’t want a scratchy beard.


There have been rumors of movement over at Greenham Common, the site of the Resistance Base in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. At this moment we have not been able to ascertain if it is preparation for filming on Star Wars: Episode VIII or if it possibly being used for Rebel base work on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. 

Thanks to Mike Lennon for the heads up on the beardless Mark Hamill pics!
