Mark Hamill is alive and well, and the “Star Wars” actor showed he had a sense of humor when he was declared dead on Friday in an internet hoax.

Hamill responded to the hoax with some self-deprecation.

“MUCH OF NATION MOURNS-RIP,” he wrote on Twitter, “a wonderful-underrated & beloved icon-Truly a legend in his own mind #SoGladIGotToMeetHim #KindaSad”

The tweet read, “BREAKING: Mark Hamill actor who played Luke Skywalker dies at 65. #MayTheForceBeWithYou #WildThoughts #Bloomsday #FridayFeeling”
