Artists’ Tribute To Carrie Fisher, The Brightest Star Wars Star

Published 3 years ago

Last Tuesday the world lost Carrie Fisher, a beloved actress who became famous after her role as princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy. The 60-year-old died 4 days after suffering a heart attack, and the fans of her and her work have come online to pay their tribute.

But instead of us guessing, who she was, let’s read Mark Hamill’s (Star Wars co-star and life-long friend of Carrie) thoughts he posted on Facebook:

“It’s never easy to lose such a vital, irreplaceable member of the family, but this is downright heartbreaking. Carrie was one-of-a-kind who belonged to us all- whether she liked it or not. She was OUR Princess, damn it, & the actress who played her blurred into one gorgeous, fiercely independent & ferociously funny, take-charge woman who took our collective breath away. Determined & tough, but with a vulnerability that made you root for her & want her to succeed & be happy. She played such a crucial role in my professional & personal life, & both would have been far emptier without her. I am grateful for the laughter, the wisdom, the kindness & even the bratty, self-indulgent crap my beloved space-twin gave me through the years. Thanks Carrie. I love you, mh.”
