Mark Hamill wants to make 2020 the year he finally meets his Star Wars mom, Natalie Portman.
Mark Hamill is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Star Wars protagonist, Luke Skywalker. Since appearing in the first film, Star Wars: Episode IV-A New Hope, Mark Hamill has portrayed the character in six of the live-action films, with the last film being last year’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Yet surprisingly, Mark Hamill has never met his franchise co-star Natalie Portman.
Natalie Portman, of course, portrayed Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. Her pregnancy with Luke and Leia Skywalker and relationship with Anakin Skywalker became a big part of Star Wars: Episode III-Revenge of the Sith. But, for whatever reason, Mark Hamill and Natalie Portman’s paths have never crossed and this is something the Luke Skywalker actor wants to change.
