Mark Hamill appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week to surprise actor and Star Wars fan Adam Scott.

May 4th, declared international Star Wars day, was the perfect day to deliver the surprise. Scott was telling guest host Kristen Bell of how when he was a kid, he wrote a letter inviting Mark Hamill to his birthday party. Unfortunately, Scott did not receive a response from his idol.

“I thought at least, if he got (the letter), and he was able to, if his schedule was clear, he was probably gonna come,” the actor said.

Scott was shocked when Hamill entered the stage to the sound of the famous Star Wars theme. The actor’s hands were shaking and he looked genuinely surprised to meet his idol.

“I’m sorry I missed your birthday,” Hamill told Scott. “I was checking my diary, and that week I had two other birthdays, a bar mitzvah and a supermarket opening.”
