LOOK: LEA SALONGA Meets MARK HAMILL At The Tony Awards!

Lea Salonga was the ultimate fangirl at this year's Tony Awards!

Lea, who won the Tony for Best Actress In A Musical for Miss Saigon in 1991, was invited to present the cast of the current Broadway revival.

But the self-confessed Star Wars fan was most excited to see fellow presenter Mark Hamill a.k.a. Luke Skywalker!

And it seemed the 64-year old actor was equally excited to meet the original Miss Saigon star!

"Luke" and Lea finally came face to face during rehearsals and the latter thanked her idol "for being so gracious and sweet."

Hamill himself retweeted their photo and even referred to the Filipino artist as his "2nd favorite Lea" - obviously next to the late Carrie Fisher who played Princess Leia.

Aside from her Star Wars encounter, Lea went on a selfie spree at the Tonys! She reunited with John Lithgow who played her father in the 1995 Hallmark movie Redwood Curtain.

The Disney legend also posed with Josh Gad who played LeFou on Beauty and the Beast and Olaf on Frozen...

Her dear friend Lin-Manuel Miranda who created the phenomenal musical Hamilton and composed songs for Moana...

And multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban who earned a Tony nomination for his Broadway debut on Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.
