"Star Wars" Legend Mark Hamill Gets Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Mark Hamill Finally Gets His Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Today

Ford honored the memory of the late Carrie Fisher, and how sorry he is that the "other member of their trio" is gone. "I'm getting it ready for tomorrow", Hamill, with a jackhammer in hand, tells Kimmel before the camera pans down to reveal Kimmel's own star demolished.

The Luke Skywalker actor instantly responded in encouragement with a gif of himself brushing off his shoulder in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The "Star Wars" icon received his Hollywood Walk of Fame star Thursday, making him the 2,630th celebrity memorialized. "It's hard to convey my gratitude, my joy and the exhilaration", he said, joking, "I haven't been this speechless since The Force Awakens". As one of the most beloved sci-fi actors of all time, Hamill seems humbled by the opportunity to appear on the acclaimed Walk of Fame.

Fans, some clutching light sabres or dressed as jedis, lined the street and cheered as they saw Star Wars newcomer Kelly Marie Tran as well as producer Kathleen Kennedy and The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. Even R2-D2 made room in his busy schedule to show up. Ford provided a lovely introduction, poking fun at Hamill by claiming that the crowd for his own Hollywood Walk of Fame moment, back in 2003, was much larger than Hamill's.

"I prepared myself for this experience by going back and looking at the screen test that I did with Mark".

Hamill caught wind of it and gave her official permission from Luke Skywalker to dust off the haters.

Fords hugs Hamill after his speech about his long-time costar and friend.

Hamill has been a prolific voiceover artist in animated series and video games, including as the Joker in "Batman" and "Justice League" projects. It's all relative and it's so nice and I really appreciate it but you've got to make sure it doesn't change who you are and it doesn't change who I am.
