Mark Richard Hamill (born September 25, 1951) is an American actor, writer, producer, and director. He is best known for his portrayal of Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy (1977–1983), a role he will be reprising in the forthcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). Hamill's voice acting work includes a long-standing role as the Joker, commencing with Batman: The Animated Series in 1992, and continuing in various Batman animations and games.
On December 17, 1978, Hamill married dental hygienist Marilou York in a private civil ceremony. They have three children together: Nathan (born June 25, 1979), Griffin (born March 4, 1983), and Chelsea Elizabeth (born July 27, 1988). Nathan was born during the production of The Empire Strikes Back and had a cameo role in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, playing one of the Royal Guards of Naboo.
On January 11, 1977, one day before he was set to shoot one of the needed scenes in Star Wars, Hamill was in a car accident in which he fractured his nose and left cheekbone, requiring seven hours of surgery. As a result, a double was used for the landspeeder pickup shots. According to Hamill in a recorded interview, he was driving his BMW on a freeway distracted, and seeing that he was missing his offramp, tried to negotiate four lanes of traffic. Hamill stated in that interview that some of the real scars from the crash made an appearance in The Empire Strikes Back.
