An older Mark Hamill got in the lift at work today. Come to think of it, Mark himself is somewhat age-ed, maybe it was him? My very own Luke Skywalker!
“Ladies, check out my light sabre!”
I always thought it a pity that little Mark never became bigger. In life, and in film. I guess I’ve always had a penchant for the short man, they seem like such a neat little package. Somewhat emasculating? Apologies. As a tallish woman, this penchant goes unanswered because a small man will simply make you feel like a large woman, which just ends in tears really. A lot of famous actors are short. William Goldman had an obsession with the short movie star (which he talks about in his book, Which Lie Did I Tell?)
He once saw Stallone in a swimming pool and surreptitiously sidled up to him, to answer for himself – just how short is this guy?
Answer: pretty bloody short.
