Mark Hamill mocks the fake news of his own death


Mark Hamill is alive and well, and the “Star Wars” actor showed he had a sense of humor when he was declared dead on Friday in an internet hoax.

Hamill responded to the hoax with some self-deprecation.

“MUCH OF NATION MOURNS-RIP,” he wrote on Twitter, “a wonderful-underrated & beloved icon-Truly a legend in his own mind #SoGladIGotToMeetHim #KindaSad”

It all started from a fake Twitter account for news website Huffington Post on Friday afternoon.

The tweet read, “BREAKING: Mark Hamill actor who played Luke Skywalker dies at 65. #MayTheForceBeWithYou #WildThoughts #Bloomsday #FridayFeeling”

“Star Wars” fans can plan on seeing more of the actor who played the iconic Luke Skywalker in the blockbuster franchise. He’s set to appear in the upcoming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and reportedly returning for “Star Wars: Episode IX,” which is slated for a 2019 release.
