Mark Hamill has been blindsided by praise from Ming-Na Wen following The Mandalorian season two.

Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, made a surprise appearance in the Disney+ series’ most recent finale last month.

His return came as a big shock to viewers, who were left floored by the “epic” and “amazing” twist.

Mulan star Wen, who plays Fennic Shand in the spin-off, was overjoyed to share the screen with Hamill, and has since called it “truly one of the biggest highlights, not just in my career, but in my life”.

“You (& Luke) have been immensely inspirational & impactful to my childhood & as an adult,” she wrote on Twitter.

It turns out that Hamill is a fan of Wen, who also appeared in medical series ER.

He told his Twitter followers that he was "speechless" after reading her post.

“So this happened & I’m literally speechless, other than to say: the pleasure was all mine @MingNa!” he wrote, adding: “Much❤️, Mar🐫 @themandalorian #YoureNotSoBadYourself.”

Wen replied saying that she had “reached nerd nirvana”.

Wen will co-lead a new Star Wars spin-off titled The Book of Boba Fett, which will be broadcast later this year.

It will arrive in the place of a third Mandalorian season, which is yet to be announced by Disney.
