Mark Hamill has revealed how the new security measures on Star Wars Episode 9 is giving him a bit of a headache.

Talking to EW on set of Knightfall, Hamill recalled how on the very first Star Warsmovie, he was able to just share the script around friends because "nobody cared". But now he doesn't even get a paper copy to keep of the script.

"Nowadays it’s like working for some secret deep state government organisation, like being in the CIA. They’re going to send rewrites over to Prague on this dark red paper that gives you a headache to read," he explained.

The same type of pages were used on The Force Awakens because if they're copied, the copy will come out black and impossible to read. Hamill was at least allowed to keep a paper script for The Last Jedi, but it doesn't look like he'll get the chance with Episode 9.

"They’re going to fly [the rewrites] over with somebody from the company. They’re going to come and give it to me and wait for me to read it before I give it back. So no pressure! You can’t even keep it overnight. But that’s the way it is now," Hamill noted.
