He rose to prominence from his role Luke Skywalker in the record-breaking movie, Star Wars. His work in the film was appreciated by the viewers, which opened the gate to a bright future.
Except for Hamill work in Star Wars he is quite popular as a voice actor for popular video games and animations, including Justice League Action (as Joker), Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens (as Luke Skywalker), The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (as Klaw), and many more.
However, Hamill is not only famous for his professional success; he caught a lot of attention from his plastic surgery, which was performed due to his car accident.

Even though Mark Hamill's facial injuries from car crash didn't affect the production of the Star Wars: A New Hope, it might precipitate writers to make some changes in the movie sequel The Empire Strikes Back.
As the opening scene of the second continuation of Star Wars began from Hamill's face being distorted by the claws of a Wampa in the film. That small clip made things fuzzier, making people think about whether it was created because of the accident or it was put there without concerning Hamill mishap and plastic surgery.
Original Wampa Scenes - The Empire Strikes Back
Like the plastic surgery story of the star Hamill, the real truth behind the Wampa scene becomes hazier. On the one hand, director Lucas says, even though the snow monster part helped to justify Mark's new look after the surgery, it wasn't build up in the movie because of his car crash. On the other hand, actress Carrie Fisher who portrayed the role of Princess Leia on the film mentioned, that filmmakers totally adjusted the film to match with the different looks Hamill got from the nose job.
What is the actual reason it hasn't solved, until today and we think both of the stories of the plastic surgery and Wampa scene will not be revealed any time soon, as Hamill doesn't speak too much about those incidents in public?
