Hamill’s ‘Star Wars’ family was on hand for the ceremony that took place Thursday. “It’s hard to convey my gratitude, my joy, the exhilaration of being recognized this way. I haven’t been this speechless since ‘Force Awakens.’ – Mark Hamill
It’s been more than 40 years since creator George Lucas chose Ford and Hamill as his leading men in 1977’s ‘Star Wars.’
“He’s a friend that I don’t see very often. Our lives have diverged to a certain extent but I am very pleased for him… I think he has found comfort and utility and control of his destiny and I’m happy for you, pal.” – Harrison Ford
Mark Hamill, 66, last appeared as Luke Skywalker in 2017’s ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ and will also make an appearance in ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’, which is set for release in 2019.
