5. Some of his stories are unbelievably heartwarming

6. That Joker voice of his is so unsettling and iconic that it even threw Daisy Ridley out of step


7. Mark never goes anywhere without his favorite jumper


He's got a pretty good sense of humor about it, too


8. In fact, Mark has a pretty good sense of humor about most everything

undefined


9. That includes interactions with fans...

undefined


10. ...and of course self-depricating jokes

undefined


11. People think Sebastian Stan (aka the Winter Soldier) looks a heck of a lot like a young Mark Hamill, and they're not wrong

undefined

undefined


...which makes Sebastian's message to his "father" all the more heartwarming


12. That's not the only "son" Mark has adopted

undefined

undefined


13. To be clear, he seems like a great dad to his actual kids, too


14. He's gotten pretty good at his trolling game over the years


15. But the best part about Mark Hamill is how he's truly touched people's lives
