    He's literally such a nerd and fully embraces everything Star Wars instead of trying to distance himself from it, and I love him for it.

    "I love how a lot of celebrities are like 'I want to distance myself from this iconic character I played and I don't use that influence for making political statements' and then mark hamill is like 'luke skywalker would hate you, personally, in canon'"

    3. When he had the perfect response to the statement "Star Wars is for boys":

    6. And when it resurfaced and wasn't his favorite memory:

    No. It was for a German TV Special. I didn't want to wear it, but they seemed so disappointed, I changed my mind, thinking: Nobody but a few Germans will ever see it. Oops. #NothingGoesAwayOnTheInternet 😩 https://t.co/6sc7gDZy3v

    12. When he did this amazing impression of Harrison Ford:

    Mark talks about pointing out that his hair should've been wet after the Star Wars trash compactor scene, and them imitates Harrison saying, "Hey kid, it ain't that kind of movie. If people are looking at your hair, we're all in big trouble"

    21. Basically every tribute he ever made to Carrie, but I especially love how he celebrated her image being used in the Women's March:

    I know where she stood. You know where she stood. Such an honor to see her standing with you today. Bigly. #Resistance #WorldWideWomensMarch

    22. When he revealed he didn't even realize that he was the star of Star Wars because he just assumed Harrison was after seeing how cool he was:

    Mark: "When I did the scene, I thought Han Solo was the lead character, and I was the sidekick. Harrison was a bona fide leading man, so I thought he was Captain America and I was Bucky"

    23. When he couldn't stop reposting Bernie/Star Wars memes:

    24. And finally, when he posted this edit showing he finally got those power converters from the Tosche Station.
