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

A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame honoring Mark Hamill for a career highlighted by his portrayal of Luke Skywalker in five "Star Wars" films will be unveiled Thursday. In tribute to his iconic role as Luke Skywalker, the honoree was joined by the likes of R2-D2, a stormtrooper, the franchise's creator George Lucas as well as Hamill's co-stars new and old-Harrison Ford, Kelly Marie Tran and Billie Lourd.

Ford, who received a star in 2003, joked about the turnout for Hamill's big day.

"They are the most passionate, loyal people". "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.

"But I feel her presence", Ford continued, before taking a deep breath in.

Mark Hamill attends the 90th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4, 2018 in Hollywood, California. Hamill famously did not have any lines in that film. Since the space saga made him a household name, the actor's had a massively successful run voicing the Joker in the animated Batman series.

The Star Wars icon previously poked fun at USA leader Donald Trump as he celebrated news of his Walk of Fame star last month. "And you can get self-conscious about it, like, 'Am I worthy of this?'"

Ford continued, "He has been the master of his own experience, his own life and he is as he always was - a quiet, sincere, honest person".

In his speech before the reveal, Hamill thanked his fans. "I was surprised actually how good he was", Ford said. "Thank you so much and may the Force be with each and every one of you".
