Luke Skywalker would only want the Force if it was given to him genuinely. And Mark Hamill feels the same way about fans who want his autographs.

The actor took to Twitter to caution Star Wars fans about fake autographs that are currently being circulated. “I’m so sorry there’s so many fans spending their hard-earned money for fradulent signatures,” he wrote.


The actor took his PSA one step further, responding to fans who asked about autographs they had already bought or were planning on buying, confirming jokes he had written on trading cards and showing them how to spot the unique way he uses his real signature. When asked why he was going out of his way, Hamill’s response was simple: “Because I owe it to all true fans to protect them from being victimized by dishonest dealers.”
