Star Wars Actor Mark Hamill Celebrates A Milestone With His Wife On Twitter

Mark Hamill won millions of hearts portraying Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise. Nowadays, the 66-year-old actor is celebrating a milestone with his beautiful wife Marilou York. They have been together for 39 years. He recently took to Instagram to prove his love did last, contrary to everyone’s opinions in the past. This was another reason to celebrate, besides the recent premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This Hollywood romance is all you need to hear about this holiday season.

The actor met York when she was working as a dental hygienist in Westwood, Los Angeles. “She came into the waiting room in jeans, white coat, breasts like melons, looking like a Vargas painting,” Mark told People magazine in 1981. “I said, ‘They let you dress like that at work?’ She said, ‘Yeah. Next.'”

Hamill said it was ‘love at first laugh:’ “I took her to Annie Hall to see if she had a sense of humor. I dropped women if they didn’t. There was this one close-up of a minor character, curling his lips back from his teeth. She leaned over to me and whispered, ‘Bad caps.'”

She did have a sense of humor!

Mark and Marilou took their vows on December 17, 1978. He was 26 and she was 23 at the time. So young! Now. they have three children together: Nathan (born 1979), Griffin (1983), and Chelsea Elizabeth (1988).
