Actor Mark Hamill portrayed Luke, who first appeared in Star Wars, retroactively titled Star Wars: Episode IV—A New Hope (1977).
He then returned in The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983).
Luke was originally a farmer on Tatooine, living with his aunt and uncle.
He becomes an integral figure in the Rebel Alliance, which battles against the Galactic Empire.
Hamill reprised the role three decades later when he returned as Luke in the Star Wars sequel trilogy: The Force Awakens (2015), The Last Jedi (2017), and The Rise of Skywalker (2019).
Thanks to digital de-aging, he could also voice Luke Skywalker in The Mandalorian episode “Chapter 16: The Rescue” (2020).
It is revealed that Luke is the son of Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker (turned Sith Lord Darth Vader) and Padmé Amidala.
Even if you are not a Star Wars fan, chances are you have heard someone say, in their best Darth Vader voice, “Luke, I am your father.”
