Empire Every Day 029

I think it would be cool to make a list of all the locations where they have filmed Star Wars and try to visit as many as I could. I have always wanted to go to Tunisia and pretend that I was on Tatooine.

029: When shooting on-location in Finse, Norway, a fierce snowstorm hit the hotel where the cast and crew were staying. This would have normally halted filming, but director Irvin Kershner thought these weather conditions were an excellent opportunity to film the scene where Luke wanders through the snow after escaping the Wampa cave. He did this by sending Mark Hamill outside into the cold, while he and the cameraman stayed and filmed inside the hotel’s front hall.

Poor Mark, you have to respect the craft though. He could have stayed inside and insisted that they resume filming on another day but he got out there and he did his job.

I’ve replaced the word FACT with the number day we are on, I think it looks a bit nicer. I was debating back and forth between whether to use the word trivia or the word fact but I think the number does its job fairly well. .
