Hamill liked a tweet sent to him by a Wolves fan, thinking it was in reference to actual wolves.
But that simple mix-up is what quickly escalated into Luke Skywalker pledging his allegiance to the club in a matter of hours.
Having seen Hamill's like, fan group Wolves Fancast tweeted the Star Wars actor asking whether he was a fan.
