Lea Salonga Takes Selfies With Luke Skywalker, Hamilton at the Tonys
Even the stars aren’t immune to getting starstruck sometimes. Case in point, Tony Award winner Lea Salonga, who herself was a presenter at this year’s award show. The Filipino Broadway star put her backstage privileges to good use and took photos with some incredible talents. To make us all envious, she tweeted her selfies with stars such as Mark Hamill, who portrays Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars saga, and Josh Gad, who was recently in Beauty and the Beast as LeFou.
Salonga was with Mark Hamill, whom she excitedly tweeted about a week before the show. They apparently exchanged sentiments, as Hamill tweeted that he was excited to meet the woman who played Miss Saigon.

Playwright and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda showed his adoration for Lea by giving her a kiss.
Lea also posted a photo with herself and two Hamilton stars, Christopher Jackson and Okieriete Onaodowan.
