September 25, 2011 marks the 60th anniversary of Mark Hamill, who immortalized his name after playing Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy.
The future star's acting career began on the stage and television. Already at the age of 19, he starred in The Bill Cosby Show and various TV shows.
Few people know that participation in the project of George Lucas not only brought him worldwide fame, but almost cost his life. Heading to the shooting, the actor once fell asleep at the wheel of his car and had a serious accident. He had to undergo several operations, including plastic ones. Star Wars lovers probably noticed how Hamill's appearance changed for the last episode.
The role of Luke Skywalker was the main one in the life of the actor, but she actually put an end to his career. The directors did not see him in any other way. Nevertheless, Mark Hamill was able to find applications for his talents. He worked on Broadway, voiced cartoons and published comics. It was in his voice that the Joker spoke in the animated series about Batman, which was a success in the 90s of the last century.
Mark Hamill is married with three children.
