Star Wars actor Mark Hamill will be honoured with a special award in honour of his impressive Hollywood career. The star, best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the original trilogy of films, will be handed the Don LaFontaine Legacy Award at the PromaxBDA's 2013 conference in Los Angeles next month (Jun13).
The award is in honour of his acting, writing and producing career, as well as his voiceover work on projects such as the Batman cartoon.
Jonathan Block-Verk, president and CEO of PromaxBDA, says, "Mark Hamill is one of the most iconic names in Hollywood. Breaking on to the film scene as Luke Skywalker and going on to produce, direct and write, he has successfully established himself as one of the leading voice actors through numerous and memorable roles, most notably as the Joker in the many incarnations of the Batman franchise."
