CO-STARS STAR SECRETS

Fisher and Ford’s secret love lasted for four decades. Hamill, who speak he’s “happy unaware” of their secret relationship, saying it’s good that people don’t know anything about it.

The actor “Hot Summer” said that his former girlfriend was his on-screen sister in the movie “General Hospital”. He notes that it’s hard to date a co-star because they tend to get competitive.
The aftermath of dating his co-star made Hamill realize that he no longer wanted to be in a relationship with a celebrity. He speak about their past relationship with Wyndham:
“Well, she’s not one, because I want a family, and I’m not going to ask her to give up her career to raise children.”
