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

From his start as Luke Skywalker to the villains of the Flash as the Trickster or Batman's nemesis the Joker, but he's never been memorialized with a star until now. Hamill's "Star Wars" co-star Harrison Ford and director George Lucas will help unveil the star during the ceremony.

The Star Wars community and the entertainment world in general was struck by a major blow on December 27, 2016 when Carrie Fisher passed away. "But I feel her presence".

As well as the original trilogy's remaining stars, Hamill was joined by Kelly Marie Tran and Fisher's daughter and new cast member Billie Lourd. "He's extremely enthusiastic about everything he does and that is exactly what I was looking for when I was looking for Luke Skywalker. Now, having said that, I have gotten it off my chest, and my job now is to take what you've created and do my best to realize your vision, '" Hamill said.

Hamill says there is no way to describe his joy and thankfulness for the award and even saying he hasn't been this speechless since the "Force Awakens", a joke about his short and silent appearance on the film.

"Star Wars is a big galaxy, and you can sort of find nearly anything you want to in Star Wars.", said J.J. Abrams, who is returning to helm Episode IX after directing The Force Awakens.

"If it werent for the public, Id be nowhere".

Ford paid homage to the late Carrie Fisher in his speech before honoring his Star Wars co-star and embracing him on stage.

"Hamill then said of his Han Solo counterpart, "[Harrison] gave me the great advice, 'Hey, kid, Don't get cocky.' And I have tried to remember that to this very day".

He ended his speech with the Joker's signature laugh before being accompanied by R2-D2 for the official unveiling of his star. "You just focus on the work and putting one foot in front of the other, and I guess if you hang around long enough..."
