When you think of Hollywood’s most famous heroes, there is a good chance Luke Skywalker will come to mind. The character came to fame in George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy, but the actor behind the Jedi does want to see the hero go dark just once.
Recently, Empire did a piece on Star Wars: The Last Jedi ahead of its winter release. Mark Hamill spoke with the magazine, and the star admitted he would love to play Luke Skywalker’s evil twin.
“Oh baby, would I love to play my own evil twin!” Hamill admitted.
“It’d be great because you could maybe not reveal its Evil Luke until the real Luke shows up,” the actor continued. “We could watch this guy undermining the good guys secretly – maybe even killing a supporting character out of everyone’s sight, so they all go, ‘What’s going on? He’s crazy!’ And then, of course, the good Luke shows up.”
You may laugh at the idea of Evil Luke, but the story isn’t totally impossible. Back in 1993, a Star Wars novel by Timothy Zahn thought up the idea of cloning the Jedi. The Last Command featured a clone of Luke who was created from the hand the hero lost in his battle with Darth Vader. Luke and Luuke (yes, that’s the clone’s name) did fight in an epic battle, but the clone was ultimately taken out by Mara Jade.
Sadly, it doesn’t look like there is any room for the Star Wars films to turn Luke into a baddie. Fans have speculated the hero will be embittered when he reappears in The Last Jedi, but that doesn’t mean Luke will turn to the dark side. The hero dedicated years of his life to fighting the powers at be in the Galactic Empire; He would not be so easily persuaded to turn back on his Jedi ways, even if he is a bit jaded these days.
