Would you believe it if I told you that Mark Hamill and Natalie Portman have never met? Well it’s true! We actually live in a world where Padme Amidala and her son Luke Skywalker have never seen each other, not even at a con! Last week, Hamill retweeted a Happy Birthday tweet to Portman by including, “Fun Fact: I’ve never met this woman,” which is hilarious since they’re both important characters in the over all STAR WARS universe. You would think they’ve met in passing somewhere but then I realized that Portman has never done a Convention of any sorts, so the chances of them running into each other would be slim to none.
Last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Colbert asked Portman is she saw the tweet and she said she’d love to meet him. “Mark, I’d love to meet you, where are you? Come over,” Portman said. However, she did joke that Hamill did not wish her a happy birthday in the tweet, and remarked that that would be a start.I personally would love to see Portman return for a cameo in one of the next few films. She was one of the bright spots of the second trilogy. Check out the video below so you see what Portman says.
