It's been more than a year since Carrie Fisher's tragic and untimely passing back in December 2016, but her onscreen brother and Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill's still finding it so hard to cope with Carrie's death.

Hamill just recently spoke with Radio Times after winning the Icon Award at this year's Empire Awards, and during the interview, the Star Wars legend was asked about the most emotional experience he's had in his most recent Star Wars film, The Last Jedi.


Though Hamill admits that he was certainly pushed out of his comfort zone by The Last Jedi, the actor opens up and says that the scene where Luke says goodbye to Leia is actually the scene that makes him the most emotional.

"To this day, when I see the scene where I say goodbye to Leia it just takes me out of the movie. I don't know how the ending plays anymore because it just takes the wind out of my sails. I don't know how I'm coping," Hamill says.

"Gosh knows, I should be more grateful for the time I had to spend with [Carrie Fisher] rather than being sort of upset that she's not here," the actor adds. "Though if she were here now, we'd both be on the floor laughing. She was just that way."

A lot of fans feel the same way too. Carrie was just as spunky and fearless as the Alderaan Princess and Resistance General she played in the Star Wars franchise. Her passing left a gaping hole in Lucasfilm's galaxy far, far away, and many wonder what the studio might to do for Leia in Episode IX.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is currently available on Digital HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
