‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ and Mark Hamill

Mark Hamill (Mark Richard Hamill) was born on September 25, 1951, Oakland, California, and raised in Virginia.

His father was a Captain in the U.S. Navy, and the family moved frequently. By his junior year, his father was stationed in Japan, and he attended and graduated from Nile C. Kinnick High School on Yokosuka Naval Base, where he was a member of the Drama Club. Mark Hamill later enrolled at Los Angeles City College and majored in drama.

He began his career acting in TV shows: The Texas Wheelers, Hawaii Five-O, General Hospital, The Partridge Family, and One Day at a Time.

One of his earliest movies was the TV film The City. Hamill did, and won the role.

His friend Robert Englund suggested to Hamill that he audition for the role of Luke Skywalker.

“I am a Jedi, like my father before me.” Luke Skywalker.

Released in the summer of 1977, Star Wars was a worldwide success.

Mark Hamill also appeared in the Star Wars Holiday Special (1978) and later starred in the successful sequels The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983).

Thus, a year ago, Mark Hamill confirmed that he was in talks to reprise his legendary role as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VII.

Then, he got back into fighting shape, and appeared in an official production photo. Great!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
