Mark Hamill (that’s Luke Skywalker to you, or the voice of The Joker in the Batman video games… yeah, really!) spends a lot of time responding to his fans on Twitter, who are affectionately called #Hamsters! Some of his responses are just hilarious, proving that Luke is *way* more fun in real life. He answers questions on everything from the blue/black or white/gold dress debate to showing off people’s fan-made Stars Wars merch.
He has a wry take on life, doesn’t take anything too seriously and also takes time out to visit sick kids in hospital. He’s great. You should definitely follow him on Twitter. Not convinced, ok, here’s the evidence why Mark Hamill’s Twitter is hilarious:

He’s able to take fan jokes in his stride and with great banter:

And he takes all the comparisons between him and Sebastian Stan (Bucky from Captain America) with good grace:

It has to be said, the resemblance is uncanny. We wonder if Sebastian Stan will be allowed to star in an upcoming Star Wars if they need any flashbacks? He’d be perfect to play a young Skywalker! But his contract with Marvel is probably water tight.
Mark Hamill is really great at the humblebrag:
Plus, when he signs a Star Wars product, he does so HILARIOUSLY:
