CGB Spender, Hamill's car accident happened just before making Empire. The fight with the snow creature on Hoth was included to account for his scars on his face from his car accident. He had plastic reconstructive surgery, where they removed cartiledge from his ear to rebuild his nose.
And Hamill has had a lot voice acting work as well.

It's interesting how many of the posts reveal such ignorance of how Jpnse dual-nationals handle their own passports.
Japanese law does not accept dual nationality. But they cannot effectively enforce it. They try to enforce a chose-us-or-them by the time you're 20, but most of my dual national friends choose to keep both. Then they can travel easily without a visa etc., and still re-enter japan.
I went to international school (my kohai) with this fellow and it's very disheartening to see the nature of some of these posts. No guess we all need someone to point out fingers at.
