Star Wars icon Mark Hamill thanks fans for Hollywood star

Star Wars icon Mark Hamill thanks fans for Hollywood star

Hamill's star will be the 2,630th on the Walk of Fame and will be in designated the Motion Pictures category, according to the news release. "If it weren't for the public, I'd be nowhere", he says to cheers from the gathered crowd. "From Jedi to Joker and back again, it's been a fantastic ride". Basically it was an all-star roundup on the Boulevard today to pay homage to one of the loveliest men in Hollywood, and you can check out more of the pictures in our gallery below! His most famous of those roles is perhaps the Joker in "Batman: The Animated Series".

He paid tribute to his fans after the ceremony, telling AFP he would never get used to the acclaim, nor take it for granted. "If you are someone who feels threatened by women and needs to lash out against them, you can probably find an enemy in Star Wars". "They're so supportive. I mean, through thick and thin".

Mark Hamill's legacy is cemented in the stars. "He is, as he always was, a quiet, sincere, honest person".

Harrison Ford: "I'm happy for you, pal".

"It's hard to convey my gratitude, my joy, the exhilaration of being recognised this way".

"I see so much of Carrie in Billie", Hamill said. He also thanked Ford by doing a spot-on impression of the actor, as Han Solo, giving him this piece of advice: "Hey kid, don't get cocky". Her young daughter was distressed because she wanted to sport her Star Wars shirt to school, but she was "scared" that her classmates would poke fun at her for liking "boy stuff".

The Oakland native was discovered in a workshop musical comedy called Anthems before he became a theatre arts major at Los Angeles City College.

Hamill made his television debut in a 1970 episode of the short-lived CBS comedy-drama "Headmaster".

Kimmel's late-night show is filmed next door.
