Mark Hamill

Mark Hamill has been a household name since he burst onto the global scene as Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars movie in 1977. An iconic part of the cultural zeitgeist for more than 40 years, Mark has also made an impact in the community. As an ardent supporter of the USC McMorrow Neighborhood Academic Initiative for several years, he brings a passion for the students’ achievements and the university’s mission to ensure local students are eligible to attend leading colleges and universities across the country. Mark’s wife Marilou sits on the NAI Board, and he has been the special guest entertainment – sometimes with his stormtooper pals – at all of the NAI Annual Galas. He is calling out all his Star Wars friends to join this special evening.
