Luke Skywalker

Comparison of the voice actors who have been the voice of Luke Skywalker with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Star Wars

Luke Skywalker is the original protagonist of the Star Wars series, making his debut in the fourth (or first) episode of the series.

Luke was once an ordinary young man who lived his life as a farmer on the planet Tatooine, until one day when he met the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 and the hermit Ben Kenobi - otherwise known as the old Jedi Knight, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Luke ends up going on an adventure to become a Jedi Knight and in spite of his initial reluctance, finds himself joining the Rebel Alliance. Though first known as a traditional young hero who is called to adventure, over the course of the franchise he becomes older and more experienced -- and sometimes even a mentor figure.

EDITOR'S OPINION

All right ladies and gents, here's the VC for the original hero of Star Wars... LUKE SKYWALKER! Let us begin...

Mark Hamill- Ah yes, the original role that made Mark Hamill a star, and to date is most known for (ahead of only his  clowning around in the early 90s.) Say what you will about the Holiday Special, but Mark is still the originator of the role, and his work in the special's animated segment manages to be pretty classic. Granted, he didn't have all that much material in the segment, but he still fits the role.

C Andrew Nelson-  C. Andrew's work on the role is... decent, but kind of generic. To be fair, Andrew's voice and performance suit Luke's heroic persona pretty well, but they're average at best really.

Bob Bergen- Unlike the others, Bob is playing an older and more experienced Jedi Knight, and he does a fine job with that, playing Luke as an authoritative, but caring, mentor figure. It's a fine example of Bob's work and a good example of the voice work in the Star Wars games.

Lloyd Floyd- Lloyd does a pretty good job in playing the role of a younger Luke. His voice is a bit nasal, but he still manages to provide a strong sense of anger and heroism.

Eric Bauza- Eric has a nice, heroic, youthful voice that makes him a natural for the role - and the actual performance works well with the show's comedic nature too.

Overall I am going with Bob the most, with Mark, Eric, and Lloyd at a close second, and C Andrew at a decent third.
