Sebastian Stan name has been prominently mentioned over the years as to who will pick up the role of young Luke Skywalker in future Star Wars films and TV.

In a recent Good Morning America interview, the 38-year old star of Falcon and The Winter Soldier was cagey. He said he wants to make sure he has Hamill’s blessings before he’ll consider stepping in.

“People are wondering about you perhaps playing a young Luke Skywalker,” mused co-host Robin Roberts. “Even Mark Hamill, Luke Skywalker himself, has tweeted his support.”

Stan quickly replied, “Well, if Mark Hamill calls me personally to tell me that he feels inclined to share this role with me, then I’ll believe it,” he said. “Until then, I won’t believe it.”

Hamill has already voiced his support online. In a 2017 tweet, he posted a headshot of Stan next to a still of himself taken from the 1993 film Time Runner. It was a remarkable match.

In 2018, Hamill followed up in reply to a fan’s query on Stan.

“Sebastian doesn’t need my stamp of approval!” he wrote. “He’s a wonderful actor & is never less than great in everything he does.”
