Five years ago, we lost Carrie Fisher, the iconic actress who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars films. Her unexpected death was mourned by her colleagues and fans around the world who loved her for decades. But even years after her death, her legacy still lives on and her works are still being remembered whether it's on the galaxy far, far away, or as a writer of several best-selling books.
Recently, Mark Hamill came to Twitter to post a tribute to his late co-star to remember the fifth death anniversary of Fisher's death. He simply posted a screenshot from the credits of Star Wars: The Last Jedi that paid tribute to the actress. You can view it here:
It is a simple yet endearing tribute to his co-star and long-time friend and we're sure that he still misses her and thinks about her even up to this day. The two alongside Harrison Ford are part of some of the best trio ever assembled in movie history.
Besides Hamill, Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd, who played Lieutenant Connix in the sequel trilogy, also paid tribute to her late mother on her Instagram post where she posted a throwback photo of her and Fisher posing with a koala along with the caption where she explained her grieving process. You can view the post here:
She said, "People always ask me what stage of grief I’m in. And my answer is never simple. I’m in a different stage of grief in each moment of every day. My grief is a multi-course meal with many complicated ingredients. An amuse-bouche of bargaining followed by an anger appetizer with a side of depression, acceptance for the entree, and of course a little denial for dessert. And that’s how grief should be - all things all at once - actually there is no “should” in grief - grief just is whatever it is for you and that is how it “should be”. Ps for anyone wondering why I’m posting this on the 26th it’s the 27th here down unda (aka Tomorrowland) so what better thing to post for my Momby’s Australian death anniversary (4 words I never thought I’d be putting next to each other?!?) than this picture of her and I with a koala!? Sending my love to anyone out there who needs it."
Hamill and Lourd's tribute to Fisher was really touching and it just shows how the late actress was beloved which still goes on years after her death. It's still sad to think about her death even up to this day as we lost her way too soon unexpectedly and before she got to work on The Rise of Skywalker. But we can celebrate her life, career, and her legacy playing one of the most iconic heroines in cinema which inspired millions of people for decades. She will forever be missed and remembered.
