Carrie Fisher gets makeshift Walk of Fame star, Mark Hamill shares pic

Carrie Fisher and Mark HamillThe love between Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia is a force in itself.

Mark Hamill is one of the many stars who paid tribute to Carrie Fisher when news broke that the actress died Tuesday (Dec. 27). But in a heartfelt gesture, he took to social media once again last night (Dec. 28) when he shared a photo on Twitter of a fan-made Walk of Fame star designed to honor of Carrie.

The creation was made by a fan named Jason “Grimlock” Thomas. He placed stick-on letters over a blank star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to transform it into a memorial for the Star Wars icon. The text on the star reads, “Carrie Fisher: May the Force be with you always. Hope.”

Jason’s Instagram post, which includes the caption “Our princess didn’t have a star, so I gave her one… now she lives amongst them,” was spotted by Mark. He posted an image of the makeshift star to Twitter, and accompanied it with the following text: “She took a little piece of all of us with her. #TooSoon.”

Below, check out Mark’s tweet, Jason’s Instagram picture and Mark’s Dec. 27 Facebook tribute to Carrie, in which he writes about his on-screen Star Wars sibling. He shares that Carrie “played such a crucial role in [his] professional & personal life, & both have would been far emptier without her.” He adds that he’s “grateful for the laughter, the wisdom, the kindness & even the bratty, self-indulgent crap my beloved space-twin gave me through the years.”

    I always wished Carrie and Mark had had an affair. None of this Carrie and Harrison Ford crap.

    They are so cute together. But since he’s still married to the same woman after all these years, she’s probably pretty sane and nice and it was the right decision – actresses are crazy.
