Mark Hamill calls out fake story about nearly falling to his death on the new 'Star Wars' set

Earlier this week, The Sunday Times published a story claiming “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill nearly fell to his death while filming “The Force Awakens.”

The UK outlet claimed the 63-year-old actor slipped during a shoot for the movie in Ireland months back. According to the report, an eyewitness saw Hamill saved by a guide before he fell from a climb on Skellig Michael, an island located off the southwest coast of Ireland.

The story was then picked up by the New York Daily News Monday.

There’s just one problem. 

When Hamill finally got wind of it Thursday morning, he didn’t hold back on Twitter:

He went on to say that he wasn’t hurt at all on set. 

Clearly, the force is pretty strong with Hamill.
