Mark Hamill is without a doubt one of Hollywood’s most beloved stars, as he’s endeared himself to audiences over the years through his memorable performances. While he’s brought more than a few notable characters to life in his time, the one that arguably stands above the rest is "Star Wars’" Luke Skywalker. Hamill is still widely recognized for his role as the courageous Jedi, and he seems to have accepted that notoriety. However, there was a time at which he sought to distance himself from George Lucas’ galaxy far, far away. It was at that point that co-star Carrie Fisher bestowed a brutal piece of advice upon him.

Near the end of the Original Trilogy, the now-71-year-old actor wanted to flex different acting muscles. One of the ways he sought to do so was by acting in a number of Broadway productions, with a particularly notable one being "Amadeus." From 1982 to 1983, Mark Hamill played the titular role and did so effectively. So when he learned that filmmaker Miloš Forman was directing a feature-film adaptation, Hamill threw his hat in the casting ring.
