"I Just Felt That My Career Was Over": Mark Hamill Underwent A Complicated Surgery That Changed Part Of His Face After A Car Accident
Mark Hamill is one of the most trailblazing stars in Hollywood. It’s strange — if not a little eerie — to think that Star Wars was almost the actor’s final movie, as well as his first.
On January 11, 1977, a bit more than five months before one of the most iconic movie’s release, Mark Hamill got into a horrible car accident. He was driving his new BMW along a freeway in Southern California. He was driving very fast while listening to Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.
