After Twitter user @larwoolf shared a clip of Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford in their first-ever screen test for Star Wars, the Luke Skywalker actor responded with a fun backstory to the scene.

CNBC anchor Carl Quintanilla tweeted at Hamill to “share some color” on the video. The actor replied by explaining it had been the first day he met Ford, neither of them had read the script, and George Lucas wouldn’t tell them anything else about the film.

Hamill’s tweet is especially enlightening considering that the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will most likely be his last film in the beloved franchise. Though his character Luke Skywalker died in the most recent Star Wars film, The Last Jedi (2017), the actor has confirmed that he will appear in the next movie, which is set to close out the Skywalker saga. As for Ford, his character Han Solo met his demise in The Force Awakens (2015).

Fans may never get over their Star Wars nostalgia. The co-stars’ on-camera charisma is delightful, and there are few things better than Ford’s line: “I’m beginning not to like you.”
