Joy as Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill salutes fire service gag on Twitter
HAMPSHIRE firefighters have hailed a Star Wars actor an '˜absolute legend' after he liked one of their tweets.
Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, saluted a play on words and a picture shared by Hampshire and Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS) this afternoon.
Touching on the headline of their service plan from 2015 to 2020, ‘Making life safer’, the service tweeted a picture of a firefighter using a torch – which looks similar to the franchise’s much-loved lightsabers.
In a Star Wars typeface, the image’s caption said: ‘We make light sabre’.
Mr Hamill later liked the tweet, and a HFRS spokesperson said: ‘Return of the Jedi: Luke Skywalker likes a second #StarWars themed tweet - we’re hoping for a trilogy... @HamillHimself you are an absolute legend!’
