Mark Hamill to receive star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Watch Mark Hamill Ignite a 'Star War' With Jimmy Kimmel On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Mark Hamill finally got his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and fellow Star Wars star Harrison Ford was by his side to celebrate as well as honor the late Carrie Fisher.

After starting out in melodrama General Hospital, Hamill's big break came when playing Luke in George Lucas' Star Wars, its two sequels, and then reprising the role for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

Ford, who played Han Solo stood beside Hamill as he said a lovely speech about his friend and Star Wars co-star when things suddenly got incredibly emotional.

Hamill's star will be placed in front of the El Capitan Theatre on the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced in a news release. But it was the loss of Carrie Fisher that led him to reflect on a bittersweet moment amid the celebration.

"They are the most passionate, loyal people". "These will be brief remarks because words truly fail me".

Lucas also weighs in, praising the actor for his enthusiasm that was the quality he was looking for in Luke Skywalker.

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. He closed out the event saying, "If it weren't for the public, I'd be nowhere".

'This is the only franchise where, if you go on Twitter, they say, "If such and such happens, I am so out". "From the Joker to the Jedi, it's been an awesome ride, and may the force be with each and every one of you". He has been the master of his own experience, his own life, and he is-as he always was-a quiet, sincere, honest person.
