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.

With Nikkon you're paying for the historically fine lenses, the jewel in the crown of any camera company. And Nikkor lenses are the best in Japan. Starting with the F1.

Mohammed: where did you get that "The one Japanese company that is doing it right is Uniqlo..."? Uniqlo is commonly recognized as a "Blacklist" company. OTOH, I guess it's also important not to jump on the J-bandwagon and say "blacklist!" just bc some j-staff don't like uniqlos work culture. But I don't think uniqlo is "doing it right" by simple virtue if being a number 1 apparel maker, by any means. They have a lot of internal issues and its a very unnecessarily over-the-top authoritarian workplace, extreme unpaid overtime as one key example.
