**'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Spoilers to follow**

People who have seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens will know that Luke Skywalker was waiting for Rey at the tip of an island (Skellig Island) so he could finally greet her. But was Mark Hamill actually there?

It's not widely suspected, but some people in the film industry believe that the lighting on Mark Hamill was not the way it should be if he was standing on the Island. In fact, he has lighting on him was as if he was standing indoors in a studio.

This may have been covered up using a body double and giving him the missing hand that Luke has. With special effects artists out there now who can do just about anything, who's to say that this isn't totally believable! Let's have a look where it was filmed...

As you can see, Skellig Island is off the coast of my home country, Ireland, which is quite a distance out to film one scene! Of course rising star Daisy Ridley (Rey) would be ecstatic to travel the world, but Hollywood legend, Mark Hamill might not be so keen.

What do you guys think? Do you think Mark Hamill was on Skellig Island to film that iconic scene, or was did he film it indoors and add it later? Let me know in the comments what you think!
