Biografie von Mark Hamill

Der amerikanische Schauspieler ist eine Filmlegende. Als Luke Skywalker spielte er sich 1977 in der ersten "Star Wars"-Trilogie in die Fanherzen der beliebten Science-Fiction-Reihe. Dabei war er selbst von seinem Erfolg überrascht, dachte er doch anfangs, würde als die Hauptrolle übernehmen. Als Mark Hamill dann das Drehbuch zu lesen bekam und feststellte, dass sich das Science-Fiction-Spektakel um seine Figur Luke Skywalker drehen würde, war er mehr als verdattert.

Zum Glück gezwungen

Das Vorsprechen zu "Krieg der Sterne", heute auch häufig "Star Wars: Episode IV – Eine neue Hoffnung" genannt, verlief nämlich auch alles andere als gewöhnlich. Zwar hatte Mark Hamill bis dato schon einige kleine Rollen ergattern können, doch dass er je in solch einer großen Produktion mitspielen würde, damit hatte er nicht gerechnet. Der Schauspieler , ein Freund von Hamill, sprach für den Film "Apocalypse Now" vor und ermutigte seinen Buddy, für "Krieg der Sterne" vorzusprechen, dessen Casting im selben Gebäude stattfand. Mark Hamill ließ sich überreden, machte sich aber keine großen Hoffnungen. Der Rest ist Geschichte: Der Newcomer ergatterte die begehrte Rolle des Luke Skywalkers und wurde über Nacht zum weltweit gefeierten Star. Auch in den beiden nachfolgenden Streifen "Das Imperium schlägt zurück" und "Die Rückkehr der Jedi-Ritter" trat er wieder in seiner Paraderolle auf. Im Star-Wars-Sequel "Star Wars: Das Erwachen der Macht" aus dem Jahr war er 2015 erneut als Skywalker zu sehen.

Und was geschah nach der "Star Wars"-Ära?

Abseits des "Star Wars"-Universums konnte Mark Hamill, anders als sein alter Kollege Harrison Ford, nicht so recht an die alten Erfolge anknüpfen. Zu eng war er mit der Rolle des Luke Skywalkers verbandelt. Und dennoch kann der Mime so einige hochklassige Filme auf seinem Steckbrief verbuchen. So stand er für das Remake von "Das Dorf der Verdammten", den hochgelobten Film "Kingsman: The Secret Service" und TV-Serien wie "Chuck" und "Criminal Minds" vor der Kamera.

Eine Stimme, die Gold wert ist

Doch Fans lieben ihren Mark Hamill nicht nur für seine Verdienste als Schauspieler, auch als Synchronsprecher hat der Mime eine große Anhängerschaft. Er leiht seine Stimme sowohl Kino-, TV- als auch Comic- und Videospielproduktionen. Zu großem Ruhm brachte er es in verschiedenen " "-Serie und -Videospielen, in denen er den gruseligen und total verrückten Bösewicht Joker vertont.

Keaton-You are not alone-I was bullied when I was your age-I know how awful it is. Stay strong, believe yourself & hang in there-it will get better. I bet everyone who heard your story is now your friend & you are loved more than any bully will ever be! Don't waste time wondering why a bully would be so mean-They're sad people who think hurting others will make them feel better because they really don't like themselves-They're just jealous because you're so smart & handsome ❤️Your friend-mh

I love multiple covers, but they always turn into a contest to see who sold the most copies. Who cares?! We are ALL a part of the #StarWars family! (That said: How did the #4 of 4 covers #SpaceTwins do, @EW?) Asking for a friend... 🙄- mh #LongLiveLukeAndLeia #TheLastJedi

Those who foolishly dismiss these creatures, claiming "Porgs are the new Ewoks" are simply ignoring their versatility and impact on our cinematic history. I can say from experience they steal every scene they're in! #PreposterousPorgasborg
