Wednesday is a bittersweet day for Carrie Fisher fans.
While her latest film, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is rocking the box office, December 27 marks the one-year anniversary of the famed actress’s death.
Fans and celebrities took to social media to pay tribute to Fisher, who died of undetermined causes after suffering a cardiac event on a flight from London to Los Angeles. She was 60.
“Star Wars” co-star Mark Hamill tweeted images of Fisher, including a drawing of her dressed as royalty, holding her beloved dog Gary and flipping the bird.
In the caption Hamill quoted his character Luke Skywalker’s line to Fisher’s character, his sister Princess Leia, in “The Last Jedi”: “No one’s ever really gone.”
One fan wrote, “She will always be our Leia, whether a Princess or a General. She is now One With The Force. RIP Carrie Fisher.”
Fisher’s mother, Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds, died the day after her daughter.
In August Fisher’s daughter, actress Billie Lourd, talked about the tragedy during an interview with Town & Country magazine.
“I love being my mother’s daughter, and it’s something I always will be,” she said, “but now I get to be just Billie.”
