Highlights From Mark Hamill's Q&A at Fan Expo Canada

By: Dominic Jones

Luke Skywalker actor, Mark Hamill is making his first convention in Canada this weekend at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto.  Hamill took the stage earlier tonight for fan Q&A to discuss his career, including his work in Star Wars, Batman, The Flash, and more.  Mark was in fine form, monologuing about his life and career for the 40 minutes of 60 minute Q&A, without taking a single question!  Below, are some highlights from this event,

Hamill was introduced by Innerspace hosts AJ Fry and Morgan Hoffman, who asked everyone in the audience to tweet the following as Mark came out on stage,
Once he took the stage, Mark began to tell stories as no one else can,

Mark referenced these two tweets in particular when he discussed messing with fans about spoilers on social media,
From there, Mark moved on to talking about his other projects for a bit, including his role as the Joker on Batman: The Animated Series.  He revealed he thought when auditioned that he would never be given the role of The Joker because he was Luke Skywalker,
He returned to Star Wars however when fans got their chance to ask questions, discussing how he learned about Episode VII, interesting fan encounters, and Episode VIII,
Of all the actors I've seen speak at conventions (both from Star Wars and other franchises), no one quite knows how to put on a show like Mark Hamill.  Even though he couldn't say anything about the future, Mark still told compelling stories in a fun, energetic, and engaging way. 

Fan Expo is on all weekend at Metro Toronto Convention Center.  Other Star Wars events this weekend include the North American premiere of Season Three of Star Wars Rebels and a Q&A with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Alan Tudyk (K-2SO).
