  • Mark Hamill is honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

To honor the many accomplishments of Mark Hamill in the world of film, TV, and theater, the actor earned a coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with George Lucas and Harrison speaking at a ceremony honoring the actor.

Hamill, 66, has a handful of other memorable roles under his belt, but none came close to his fame as the beloved Luke Skywalker in Star Wars. Harrison Ford presented as did the legendary creator of the Star Wars universe, George Lucas and even R2-D2 was there being all cute and beepy.

It's a tad silly, yes, but Hamill goes all out with the Star Wars references and is clearly having great craic doing so. During the ceremony, Hamill spoke about living out his childhood dreams as an actor and the honor that comes with receiving a star.

One person who Hamill missed at the ceremony was Princess Leia herself, the late Carrie Fisher, who died in December 2016 after a brief hospitalization following a heart attack.

"There's a lot more people that showed up for my star!"

"Words truly fail me", he said.

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.
