Lucas also addressed the audience, praising the chemistry formed between Hamill, Ford and Fisher in the early days of the franchise. "He is extremely enthusiastic about everything that he does, and that's exactly what I was looking for when I was looking for Luke Skywalker".
"I'm very proud of Mark for getting his star", Lucas tells the crowd in his speech. "I love knowing that I'm right here. He changed my life forever in a way that still reverberates today".
"You are with me through thick and thin, and the highs and the lows, and everywhere in between".
"If it weren't for the public, I'd be nowhere", said Hamill. "And may the Force be with all of you".
Not only has he starred in Star Wars, but he has become known for his voiceover roles, including The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and subsequent Batman series, and Fire Lord Ozai in Avatar: The Last Airbender.
