Actor Mark Hamill will always be remembered for being the star in the Star Wars franchise, and now, for a street named after him in his hometown, San Diego.
The city leaders of San Diego, decided to rename the corner of Castleton Drive at Mount Abernathy Avenue into honorary “Mark Hamill Drive“.

Hamill was born in California, but as a part of a military family, he moved a lot. He attended Hale Junior High School in Clairemont in the early 1960s, lived with his family in the 5900 block of Castleton Drive at the time. After that, he lived in other places, but San Diego is one of his favorite towns.
I’m humbled and so touched by the kindness of the people from my old neighborhood in Clairemont who approved of it and made it happen. I’ve always loved San Diego and lived some of the happiest years of my life there. To have their support means the world to me.
We are happy for the actor, and we’ll be expecting to know more about his upcoming film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
