Can you guess what shows these Star Wars actors are in?

Before a galaxy far, far away, these stars had guest spots in sitcoms, Westerns and crime shows much closer to home.


Upon the release of the original Star Wars in 1977, three little-known actors became household names. Harrison Ford appeared in small roles on TV throughout the Sixties and Seventies, Mark Hamill was just starting his acting career with only a few television bit parts and Carrie Fisher, the daughter of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, had mostly avoided show business altogether.

That all changed when the trio burst onto the scene in a galaxy far, far away. Even relatively famous actors, like Hammer horror actor Peter Cushing, were introduced to a whole new generation thanks to the iconic sci-fi movie.
