Hamill's acting debut was on The Cosby Show in 1970, and he had a number of small TV roles before being catapulted to stardom in the Star Wars films.
Although Hamill's face became instantly recognisable around the globe after Star Wars, he struggled with being identified too closely with Luke Skywalker.  He lost the part of Mozart in the film Amadeus when one of the studio executives declared 'I don't want Luke Skywalker in this film!'.  In fact, Hamill didn't return to film until 1989 - six years after 'Return Of The Jedi'.
Over the years Hamill has gained a reputation as a prolific voice actor, providing the voices for a variety of characters, most notably Batman's archenemy The Joker, as well as Spiderman's nemesis The Hobgoblin, Avenger's foe Klaw.  Not only this, but Mark has also appeared in The Simpsons, Family Guy and Robot Chicken.
In the world of gaming Hamill is well known, adding his voice to a plethora of characters across the gaming board, from vocal work in Full Throttle, X2: Wolverine's Revenge, Spyro The Dragon and Crash Bandicoot, to narrating Call of Duty II: Big Red One.  He has won several awards for his work in this field.
