    I have been a Stars Wars fan for the past 40 years, and like so many of us, I have fallen in love with the cast of characters, they've become like family. This week, I shed more than a few tears after I learned what Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars series, did to encourage a young fan.

    A guy named Ed shared on Twitter why he loves Mark Hamill; he shared that a dear friend's son, who was terminally ill, desperately wanted to meet his hero Luke Skywalker; Ed only knew one person in the movie industry and made a phone call. When Mark got the call from his agent, he told him to give the family his address and for hours Mark hosted the family and took one question after another from his young fan, all while in character as Luke Skywalker. 

    Ed said that is the Mark Hamill that many may never know humble, compassionate and charitable.
