Bio from Leonard Maltin

Boyish-looking actor who created the character of Luke Skywalker in George Lucas' classic Star Wars series. Not a terribly versatile performer, he got across enough energy and postadolescent frustration in Star Wars (1977) to create considerable sympathy for his character. Before that film, he had appeared in TV movies and done voiceovers for cartoons. He was in a serious auto accident after completing shooting on Star Wars and much of his face had to be completely reconstructed, accounting for his gaunt, hollow look in the first sequel, The Empire Strikes Back (1980). As the trilogy continued, Hamill stood still as an actor while costar Harrison Ford grew into a very credible action hero and romantic lead, and while Hamill remains the focal point of all the movies, much of the intrigue of their storylines was transferred to Ford and costar Carrie Fisher by the time of wrap-up Return of the Jedi (1983). Buoyed by his Star Wars fame, Hamill was starred in Corvette Summer (1978), and featured in Samuel Fuller's WW2 ensemble piece The Big Red One (1980) and The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia (1981), but never established himself as a bona fide star. (He fared better on Broadway, where he played "The Elephant Man" and Mozart in "Amadeus," to good reviews.) A big-budget British science fiction film, Slipstream (1989), never even got U.S. theatrical release. Hamill now stars in such video releases as Black Magic Woman (1990) and Wishman (1991). He's also the voice of The Joker on the animated "Batman" TV series, and in the feature Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993).
