For six years Hamill did guest appearances on multiple TV series and television movies, including a nine-month stretch on General Hospital and a starring-role on the critically-acclaimed comedy The Texas Wheelers. His first feature film was in George Lucas’ Star Wars.

Hamill’s career has encompassed all aspects of the entertainment industry, including stage, screen, television and new media. Best known as Luke Skywalker in George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy, he recently returned to the role in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens and in Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

His film credits include Corvette Summer, Samuel Fuller’s The Big Red One, Slipstream,Walking Across Egypt, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Sushi Girl, Kingsman: The Secret Service and the upcoming Brisby Bear. Hamill also directed and starred in the cult mockumentary Comic Book: The Movie.

A prolific voice-over artist, Hamill has performed in countless animated series for television, feature films and video games. He played the unforgettable role of the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series, reprising the character for both the Arkham Asylum video game series (for which he received a BAFTA Award) and the 2016 groundbreaking animated film, Batman: The Killing Joke. He also returned as the Trickster on CW’s The Flash, a role he first played in the original CBSseries.

Hamill has re-teamed with Wing Commander franchise creator Chris Roberts for Star Citizen: Squadron 42 with Gary Oldman, Gillian Anderson and Ben Mendelsohn. Hamill will receive his well-deserved star perfectly timed to the In-Home release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Digital and Blu-ray March 27th.
