Mark Hamill has tweeted that “today the entire milky way galaxy is the Irish” as he appeared as an international guest of honour at Dublin, and St. Patrick’s Day parade.

The “Star Wars” actor, whose great-grandmother was born in Ireland, was invited to represent the Irish diaspora in the celebration. Hamill time spent on Ireland the rocky Skellig Michael island filming of the most recent “Star Wars” movie “The Last Jedi.”

Hamill wore a tweed cap, a green scarf and a shamrock sprig if he is present at the parade, that drives him, colorfully dressed performers, and marching bands wind their way through the Irish capital.

“Game of Thrones” actor Liam Cunningham was the grand marshal of the parade on Saturday, attended by the Irish President, Michael D. Higgins.
