Marilou York came into the media spotlight after she married 'Star Wars' famed actor Mark Hamill. Many people believe that the marriage would not last long, but the couple proved otherwise.
Marilou York and Mark Hamill are Married Since 1978
Love at first sight rarely turns into a romance, let alone a lifelong commitment. However, actor Mark Hamill and his wife are an exception.
The 'Star Wars' actor first met his future wife at a dentist's office where she was working as a dental hygienist. According to Hamill, he was smitten by her first look.
"She came into the waiting room in jeans, white coat, breasts like melons, looking like a Vargas painting,I said, 'They let you dress like that at work?' She said, 'Yeah. Next.'"
Surely this pick up line in 2020 would have been beginning of a lawsuit rather than a romance, but during that time, it worked like a charm, and Hamill and York soon started dating.
Years later, on December 17, 1978, York and her then-boyfriend Hamill married in a private civil ceremony. It is not wrong to say it was a shotgun wedding as Marilou was pregnant with the couple's first child.
