Millie is a rescued mutt that was originally Hamill’s daughter Chelsea’s dog, but passed onto him when he started filming the new Star Wars films in the U.K. Millie made headlines in July 2016, when Gary Fisher and her weren’t allowed into the wrap party for Star Wars: The Last Jedi for being dogs. The event was at the London Natural History Museum, which doesn’t allow pets, so the dogs had to wait in a car until it was over.
