Legendary Star Wars actor Mark Hamill visits the Beatles Story

Legendary Star Wars actor Mark Hamill visits the Beatles Story

Mark Hamill, who is most famous for his role as Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars film series visited the Beatles Story last week.

Mark, now aged 62, was visiting Liverpool with his family after filming for the upcoming instalment of the Star Wars film franchise on Skellig Michael, a small island off the west coast of Ireland.

Mark is a big Beatles fan, and said that while he doesn’t collect Star Wars memorabilia, he loves Beatles mementoes.

“I totally understand it, because I’m totally that way with The Beatles, or the Universal horror films. I’m a fan myself, so I can totally understand that mind-set.”

“I met Ringo and George, but I’ve never asked for, nor received any special mementos from them. I bought a 25 or so piece set of Beatles memorabilia in 1970 for $112."

Mark later tweeted thanking a member of our staff for hosting him, and the rest of our staff for being "so nice". Buy tickets to the Beatles Story online here
