"I'm Luke Skywalker. I'm here to rescue you!" Luke Skywalker

Played By: Mark Hamill
Film: Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi

Why He's On The List: Mark Hamill gets a bad rap, and it's undeserved. OK, so when we first meet Luke Skywalker, he's a whiny little bitch, but as the series progresses and Luke flirts with the Dark Side, Hamill - face and soul ravaged by a car crash - injects just the right amount of gravitas to make the arc believable. Much more so than Hayden Christensen's attempt at the same with Anakin, anyway.

Finest Hour: Empire's moment of truth, as a one-handed Luke finds out who his dad really is.
