If you have followed this blog for a while, you will more than likely know that Luke Skywalker is my actual childhood Star Wars hero. If you didn’t, that’s totally understandable since I have posted a lot of content about other characters on this blog that I like.
And I know that characters are not the actors who portray them, but I think Mark Hamill gets pretty close to being Luke for many fans out there.
Recently, Ming-Na Wen (the actress that plays Fennec in The Mandalorian) took to her social media account to say something wonderful about her fondness for Mark Hamill and for Luke Skywalker:
And his reply to the fandom was just as epic:
Mark Hamill is also portrayed as a really nice guy in the media. Just like any fan that hasn’t met him, every interaction I’ve seen with him has always been wonderful, warm and positive. The only time I’ve ever encountered anything negative about him was on Pinterest when some pro-Trump fan went on about his political views on one of my Pins. But other than that (which really doesn’t count), my understanding of who Mark Hamill is as a person is a positive one – just like Luke Skywalker I guess 😅
So let’s see it people, who are your childhood Star Wars heroes (I think I already know FT’s and Tina’s), but I’m keen to see if I’m wrong. 😜
Hit me up in the comments, stay safe out there my friends and I’ll catch you in tomorrow’s post!
