Mark Hamill’s tribute to Carrie Fisher

Mark Hamill wrote a touching tribute on his Facebook page after Carrie passed away: "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, and the actress who played her blurred into one gorgeous, fiercely independent and ferociously funny, take-charge woman who took our collective breath away. Determined and tough, but with a vulnerability that made you root for her and want her to succeed and be happy."

He continued on to describe what she meant to him in his personal life: "She played such a crucial role in my professional and personal life, and both would have been far emptier without her. I am grateful for the laughter, the wisdom, the kindness and even the bratty, self-indulgent crap my beloved space-twin gave me through the years."

    She was an amazing person, slim and pretty. But life was never kind to her, drugs and mental illness changed her.

    I still saw a person who made Star Wars a reality of fiction, in action figures and make believe.

    I watched, and rewatched these movies over and over again. I enjoyed Carrie’s role as Leia, we all wanted to be her.

    The Reprisal roles of her in Star Wars: Force awakens (I watched) and a new one coming out in 2017 will be a memory (keep sake).

    But the true likeness of Carrie can never be replaced and I hope Star Wars can create a memoir of her character in future movies. 😢
