Mark Richard Hamill is an American actor and writer. He is best known for his role as Luke Skywalker in the “Star Wars” series. He has a storied career that spans decades in the entertainment industry. His portrayal of the iconic Jedi has endeared him to fans around the world, making him a beloved figure in popular culture. 

On March 21st, 2018, Mark Hamill visits Gibraltar to officially open the Gibraltar Skywalk. This new attraction, located at the top of the Rock of Gibraltar, offers breath-taking 360-degree views, standing 340 meters above sea level and surpassing the height of London's Shard.

The event was notable not only for the opening of a significant tourist attraction but also for the way it celebrated Hamill's "Star Wars" legacy. In a moment that delighted fans and attendees, Hamill ceremonially cut the red ribbon with a 'lightsaber', declaring, “the Force is strong with the Skywalk.” The Chief Minister of Gibraltar, Fabian Picardo, joined Hamill for this special inauguration, highlighting the importance of the event. The Skywalk, set at a former military lookout point, now serves as a modern point of interest that offers unparalleled views of the British overseas territory, spanning three countries and two continents. This moment underscored Hamill's enduring popularity and the global reach of the "Star Wars" saga.

Luke Skywalker, a character who traversed the stars and walked the skies in a galaxy far, far away, symbolically opening the Gibraltar Skywalk is a testament to the power of storytelling and its ability to inspire awe and wonder in our real world.
