Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars series, will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on March 8.
Hamill will receive the 2,630th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Star Wars creator George Lucas and Hamill’s co-star Harrison Ford will help emcee with Leron Gubler, president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
Ana Martinez, the producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies said in a statement: “We are proud to add this extraordinary actor to our historic Walk of Fame.”
The Luke Skywalker actor told fans on Twitter that he was ‘beyond grateful’ to be receiving a star on the Walk of Fame.
He tweeted: “Can’t say this is a dream come true because I was never foolish enough to think something like this could ever happen. When part of me doubts I deserve such an honour, I remind myself that someone got a ‘Star’ for just one crappy reality show.”
