Luke Skywalker actor removes Star Wars from his CV



The actor who played Luke Skywalker in Star Wars has removed all direct references to the films from his CV.

Mark Hamill says he wants to be known as more than "just the guy with a light saber".

The only reference on the actor's biographical details to the films reads: "He has earned international acclaim for his tireless efforts to thwart the Dark Side."

"It throws off the bell curve," Hamill says during an interview at the Belasco Theatre, where he's starring in a new Broadway play. "It throws off the way that you're graded because it can be your only frame of reference."

"It seems to me that it's semi-fraudulent for me to be still playing on it," he says. "It seems to me that I just owe the public new product. If I wanted to be a nostalgia artist, boy, I could embrace it wholeheartedly."

Hamill, now 52, is drawing attention to his other movies, his hundreds of cartoon voice-overs, his comic book work, the CD-ROMs and his Broadway plays.

Hamill's newest product is "Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks" a two-actor comedy.
