Mark Hamill has uncovered a unique piece of Star Wars nostalgia. Taking to Twitter, the 65-year-old actor posted a vintage Star Wars snap, which could in fact be the very first image of Luke Skywalker ever taken. 

The grainy throwback image sees Hamill dressed as Skywalker on his first morning on the set of 'A New Hope', waiting for his first shot. 

Asked what he was thinking on that morning, Hamill admitted that the crew thought Star Wars was 'rubbish', adding: 'I kept telling them "we're on a winner!"'

Hamill was clearly feeling the Star Wars love this weekend. He also used the social media platform to post a 'shout-out' to his current co-star John Boyega.

Is all this enough to stop us going after 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' spoilers? No. But at least he tried... 

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' will be in UK cinemas December 15.
