Millions of moviegoers of all ages came to associate Hamill with the fresh-faced protagonist he played in the series, Luke Skywalker.

After various live-acting gigs throughout the 1980s, he returned to voice acting as the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series. While he has done other voice acting, his work as the Joker was so critically acclaimed and loved by fans he has remained busy doing the Joker’s voice is multiple series, animated movies, video games, and other media.
