Star Wars icon Mark Hamill thanks fans for Hollywood star

09 March 2018

On Thursday, the Star Wars actor was honored in front of Los Angeles' El Capitan Theatre as Stars Wars alums old and new were in attendance, including Harrison Ford, Billie Lourd, Kelly Marie Tran, R2-D2, and George Lucas.

With Hamill at his side, Ford shared his regret that the third member of their alliance from "a galaxy far, far away" - Carrie Fisher, who was Princess Leia - was not at the ceremony.

The most bittersweet moment of the ceremony came when Harrison took a moment to shout out Carrie. So the mom asked her followers to retweet and comment to show her daughter "how awesome Star Wars fans are".

"Mark Hamill, I feel is top notch", said Percy Chang, who waited in line for about eight hours.

Lucas also addressed the audience, praising the chemistry formed between Hamill, Ford and Fisher in the early days of the franchise. "Thank you so much, and may the force be with each and every one of you".

He added: 'It surprises me, but, look, you can't please everybody.

"When thinking about today, I was really sorry that we don't have the other member of our trio here to celebrate with us", he said.

"I'm very proud of Mark for getting his star", Lucas tells the crowd in his speech.

Hamill's "Star Wars" co-star Ford says he prepared himself for the event by going back and re-watching his original screen test with the actor.

"Let's be honest, if it weren't for the genius of George Lucas, I wouldn't be standing here today", he said. "They're so supportive. I mean, through thick and thin". "I was looking for somebody that'd grown up on a farm, out in the middle of nowhere - very naive about what was going in the world, young, but enthusiastic". "I love knowing that I'm right here". His most famous of those roles is perhaps the Joker in "Batman: The Animated Series".
