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.”
