"If it weren't for the public, I'd be nowhere", said Hamill. "You are with me through thick and thin, in the highs and in the lows and everywhere in-between".
Helping to unveil the star will be guest speakers Harrison Ford and George Lucas. Ford continued, describing Hamill as "quiet, sincere, and honest". "When part of me doubts I deserve such an honor, I remind myself that someone got a "Star" for just one crappy reality show".
