Biography

While most artists strove to hone a single craft and spend their lives inhabiting that one world, actor Mark Hamill navigated a universe that went from feature films to television and voiceovers for video games. Most significantly, Hamill portrayed one of the most identifiable characters in film and pop culture history, Luke Skywalker, the farm boy-turned-Jedi Knight in "Star Wars" (1977), "The Empire Strikes Back" (1980) and "Return of the Jedi" (1983). Despite the enormity of the "Star Wars" trilogy and its place in cinema history, Hamill's later film career faltered, only for him to reemerge to breathe life into various animated characters. Because "Star Wars" creator George Lucas spun the films off into comic books, animated series and video games, Hamill was assured work reprising Skywalker for years. On the stage, he had a critically praised turn in "The Elephant Man," "Amadeus" and "Harrigan n' Hart." But it was his return to his original love of comic books that saw him voice scores of characters for film, television, and video games, most notably Skywalker and The Joker on "Batman: The Animated Series" (Fox, 1992-95). Though he branched out into multiple mediums, Hamill remained an icon for portraying a single character in arguably the biggest trilogy in cinema history.

Bonus Trivia

.

On acting in front of a green screen: "I came the week of pre-production before we actually started shooting ['Wing Commander III'] to look at all the toys. I walked on the set, and there was that big green screen, and I immediately flashed back to Jabba's palace [in 'Return of the Jedi'] and George [Lucas] saying 'In about 10 years, these kinds of movies will be prohibitively expensive. What we wanted to do [was] build Jabba's palace puppet sized, put it next door and have you guys all on blue screen to put you in the palace later. It'll save millions.'"

.

About being a CD-ROM star: "I kind of embarrass [my kids]. They'll be playing 'Wing Commander' and all of a sudden their dad shows up on screen." – Hamill in Entertainment Weekly, Oct. 13, 1995
