Who is Dobbu Scay in Star Wars The Last Jedi?
If you’ve seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi, do you recall seeing Mark Hamill in not one but TWO roles?
Yep – it turns out Luke Skywalker wasn’t quite enough of a role for Star Wars legend Hamill, as he went undercover in a second role in the eighth film.
Hamill also played the part of………*drum roll*………Dobbu Scay.
Did you spot him?
Dobbu Scay is a CGI character in Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi.
It’s not actually clear just what he looks like or even what scenes we might have seen him in.
All we know is that he’s some kind of an alien and he was definitely in the film.
One hint Hamill did manage to squeeze out is that he may well have been in a scene with around 200 other extras in a casino.
Hamill revealed his intriguing news after a Last Jedi screening, during which he joined writer-director Rian Johnson as well as several members of the crew for a Q&A.
During the credits, Hamill is credited with more than one character and he was asked about it, as he said coyly.
‘I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m not telling. I like playing the mystery of it all,’ Hamill said.
As an accomplished voice actor, Hamill has hundreds of credits to his name on animated shows including as The Joker in DC’s Batman series and he asked Johnson for a CG character and ended up in the Canto Bright casino scene.
‘I said I’d love to do a CGI thing, and he said sure,’ he said.
‘And I got to go to the set of the casino and see in detail 150 extras in jaw-dropping costumes.’
While costume designer Mark Kaplan interjected: ‘200.’
It was then suggested, according to Entertainment Weekly, that Hamill’s Dobbu Scay character was an anagram for editor Bob Duscay.
To which Duscay said: ‘Could be.’ Such. A. Tease.

Johnson then added: ‘That was Pablo Hidalgo having some fun.’
But it came as news to Hamill himself, as he said: ‘I thought he just shook up some Scrabble tiles and threw them on a table.’
What this does mean is that you’ve now got to see the film again and again until you spot Hamill’s iconic voice and can reveal to the world which scene Dobbu is in.
