Mark Hamill has received his Walk Of Fame star five decades after first finding fame in Star Wars: A New Hope.

Hamill, best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars series, was joined by Star Wars creator and director George Lucas, Harrison Ford, R2-D2, fans, and a few Stormtroopers to boot outside El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood's Heart.

As he accepted his star, Hamill told the crowd he was struggling to convey the depth of his gratitude.

Harrison Ford is honoring his pal, Mark Hamill, but he also has their beloved co-star Carrie Fisher on the mind. "There were a lot more people that showed up for my star", he cracked.

"Mark is a friend that I don't see very often".

"Mark Hamill is a character that can't be written", said Lucas.

He ended his speech by praising Hamill for how he's lived his life and embraced it along the way. That's exactly what I was looking for when I was looking for Luke Skywalker. He has since returned to the role in the latest installments of the franchise, "The Force Awakens" and "The Last Jedi".

Before the ceremony Twitter user, @NJSimmondsTPK posted a tweet explaining how her seven-year-old daughter was very upset because she wanted to wear a Star Wars t-shirt to school but was too afraid her classmates would bully her for liking "boy stuff". In fact, I remember when George Lucas first asked me to come back, I said, 'OK, but I have two provisions. "He has been the master of his own experience, his own life", Ford said.

"From Jedi to Joker, it's been a fantastic ride". "They're so supportive. I mean, through thick and thin. You just focus on the work and putting one foot in front of the other, and I guess if you hang around long enough..."
