Mark Hamill

Actor Mark Hamill was born on September 25, 1951 in Oakland, CA to parents William, a U.S. Navy captain, and Suzanne. He and his six siblings moved all over. They lived in New York, Virginia, and Japan. After completing high school in 1969, Hamill and his family returned to the U.S. He got bit by the acting bug and enrolled in Los Angeles City College as a theater arts major. His first acting job on Andy Griffith’s “Headmaster” came rather quickly and then he was cast in a recurring role on soap opera “General Hospital.” Hamill really struck it big in 1977 when George Lucas cast him as Luke Skywalker, a role he has reprised many times in the ongoing film series. The avid comic book collector also keeps busy with voice over work for cartoons such as The Joker in “Batman: The Animated Series” and video games. Hamill made his Broadway debut in “Elephant Man.” He and his wife Marilou, a dental hygienist, married since 1978. They are involved in multiple children’s charities including The Make-A-Wish Foundation. The longtime couple has three children – Nathan, Griffin, and Chelsea.
