Harrison Ford Gave An Emotional Speech In Memory Of Carrie Fisher

After getting a few friendly digs in at Mark Hamill while presenting him with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Harrison Ford took a moment to honor the late anchor of their iconic Star Wars gang.

Hamill, 66, has a handful of other memorable roles under his belt, but none came close to his fame as the beloved Luke Skywalker in Star Wars.

Harrison Ford, who portrayed fugitive smuggler and all-round charmer Han Solo in four "Star Wars" films, was among those on hand to pay tribute to Hamill, along with "Star Wars" creator George Lucas.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro.

On Wednesday night, Hamill appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live appearing to destroy the talk show host's star in order to make room for his own.

"Words truly fail me", he said.

Hamill most-famously played Luke Skywalker and also voiced the Joker in the animated series of Batman back in the 1990s.

I repeat, "The Force is, & always will be strong with females here on Earth & in galaxies far, far away." . Hamill then let out the creepy Joker laugh. "He changed my life forever in a way that still reverberates today". I was looking for somebody who had grown up on a farm in the middle of nowhere, very naive about what was going on in the world, young, but enthusiastic.

'This is the only franchise where, if you go on Twitter, they say, "If such and such happens, I am so out". "Thank you so much and may the force with each and every one of you", he added. Ford continued, describing Hamill as "quiet, sincere, and honest".
