About Mark Hamill (1951 – )
Mark Hamill was born in Oakland California. As a navy brat he grew up in California, Virginia, New York and Japan. He attended LA City College, where he majored in drama.

Mark made his acting debut on The Bill Cosby Show in 1970. He later landed a role on the soap General Hospital.

Mark Hamill is of course most famously known as Luke Skywalker in the first Star Wars film trilogy (1977, 1980, and 1983) – the young, intrepid space adventurer and unsuspecting son of Darth Vader. After his stint in Star Wars, he acted on Broadway, playing leading roles in The Elephant Man, and Amadeus. Since then he has been at work in sci-fi, action/adventure films, campy spoofs and many television guest roles.

Recently he has had a career as a voice actor, playing villains in animated movies, such as the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series (1992–1995). This led to other programs, such as The Super Hero Squad Show, The Avengers, Earth's Mightiest Heroes, The New Woody Woodpecker Show, Metalocalypse, and Robot Chicken.

Mark Hamill has made a career of creating fantastical characters on the screen. He actually wanted to be a cartoonist "and create my own world and be able to have a studio at home and not commute and be able to be with my family. I just didn't have the skills to pull that off and so I've gravitated toward theater because I like all of it."

Of the never-ending success of STAR WARS, Hamill said, "I've learned that the movies (Star Wars) will never finally end. It just goes on and on and on and on. I mean, it's going to be in 3D, then it's going to be smellivision, then it's going to be a ride in an amusement park, then they'll come to your house and perform it with puppets on your lawn ... it'll never end! I accepted that a long time ago."
