Mark Hamill Honored with Icon Award During Comic-Con Panel

Mark Hamill proudly displays his Icon Award trophy with co-star Taron Egerton standing behind him during their panel at 2019 Comic-Con on Friday (July 19) in San Diego, Calif.

The actors were at the event to talk about their Netflix animated series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, which is a prequel to the 1982 movie.

During the event, Mark was honored with the 2019 Comic-Con Icon Award.

“Listen, I told you how lucky I feel to be able to do all the things that I loved as a kid and get paid for it, so this just… seems wildly excessive, but it is much appreciated,” Mark said while accepting the award (via EW). “I have to tell you, actors get up and they say, ‘Oh, I need to share this with [my] agent’ or whatever, but listen guys, if it weren’t for you, I certainly wouldn’t be standing here.”

“I started coming to these Cons years before I met George! I remember I was at the Con when they said, ‘Did you hear? There’s gonna be 5,000 people this year!’ And we were like, ‘Wow! How many are women!?’ So I thank you very, very much,’” he added.
