James Van Der Beek Celebrates Star Wars Day With a Message About His Daughter

May 4 marks a beautiful day in the galaxy: Star Wars day!

On Wednesday, the star shared a picture of his daughter Olivia in full Star Wars gear and sent a special note of gratitude to J.J. Abrams and Daisy Ridley. "Thank you," he wrote, "for a strong, complex female heroine of little girls daydreams." We're used to seeing infectiously fun family snaps from James, but this one really takes it up a notch.
