He use character voices while speaking to customers, "I was always trying to find the theatrical aspects of it. I was in the back all the time, making shakes and manning the grill, and I always aspired to work the window. The one chance I had at it, it never occurred to me to not be in character." Hamill is known for being  Luke Skywalker in Star Wars.  More for from Hollywood Reporter
