‘I Thought They Meant The Animal!’ – Adorable Twitter Mix-Up Sees Mark ‘Luke Skywalker’ Hamill Become Wolves Fan Overnight

It looks like Wolverhampton Wanderers now have a new second-coolest fan (Robert Plant, if you’re wondering) in the unlikely guise of Mark Hamill, he of Luke Skywalker fame.

Despite openly admitting that he’d never head of the Championship side until a couple of days ago, Hamill is now a full-blooded Wolves supporter thanks to a rather adorable little mix-up on Twitter.

It all began when Hamill ‘liked’ a tweet from a Wolves fan, assuming the person in question was talking about the animal – one of this favourites.

The 65-year-old actor soon realised his error but stuck to his guns/lightsabre regardless, instead vowing to become a staunch ally of the West Midlands football club of the same name…

Wolves’ official Twitter account were quick to strike back, offering a hand of friendship across the galaxy…

As if Wolves hadn’t already frittered away enough cash to outfit their squad for a proper play-off push this season, now they’ve got the Last Jedi on side too.

Anything less that automatic promotion would represent a huge disappointment to the council.

    Interesting that Mr. Hamill expressed his support because “they made me feel like family.”
    This is the outstanding visible characteristic of the wolf. This comment being from one who researches that other social animal, their behavior, communication, and cognition.

    EFL supporters are the best on Twitter. Forest and Wolves fans especially.
