Star Wars’ actor gets his star on Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Wars’ actor gets his star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

On his talk show last night, Jimmy Kimmel discovered that Mark Hamill was destroying his Hollywood Walk of Fame star (incidentally, right outside the studio where Kimmel's show is filmed) with a jackhammer.

Hamill got some sweet support from his former Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford, Star Wars creator George Lucas, recent Last Jedi co-star Kelly Marie Tran, as well as a pair of Storm Troopers and the iconic droid R2-D2.

As he accepted his star, Hamill told the crowd he was struggling to convey the depth of his gratitude.

Ford, who received his own star in 2003, also poked fun at the turnout for Hamill's big day. But it was the loss of Carrie Fisher that led him to reflect on a bittersweet moment amid the celebration.




The 66-year-old actor, who starred in Star Wars: A New Hope in his 20s, took the stage with the same exuberance he's shown at many appearances, waving to fans who lined the Walk of Fame and even drawing a heart in the air.

"Mark Hamill is a character that can't be written", Lucas said of the animated actor while Hamill proceeded to make faces at the audience.

I repeat, "The Force is, & always will be strong with females here on Earth & in galaxies far, far away." . "If it weren't for the genius of George Lucas, I wouldn't be standing here today..." Hamill then let out the creepy Joker laugh.

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. "If it weren't for the public, I'd be nowhere, and from Jedi to Joker and back again, it's been a fantastic ride. You just focus on the work and putting one foot in front of the other, and I guess if you hang around long enough..." "They are with you in career highs and career lows", he said.
