Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, JJ Abrams and more pay tribute to Carrie Fisher
Tributes have been paid to Star Wars star Carrie Fisher who died yesterday (December 27th) at the age of 60.
Fisher, who suffered a cardiac arrest on a flight over the weekend and was rushed into hospital, died yesterday morning.
Harrison Ford, who worked alongside her on the original Star Wars trilogy, said of the actress: "Carrie was one-of-a-kind…brilliant, original. Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely."
George Lucas also contributed a tribute, saying: "Carrie and I have been friends most of our adult lives. She was extremely smart; a talented actress, writer and comedienne with a very colorful personality that everyone loved. In Star Wars she was our great and powerful princess—feisty, wise and full of hope in a role that was more difficult than most people might think. My heart and prayers are with Billie, Debbie and all Carrie's family, friends and fans.""

Carrie was my friend. It took me three series but I got her in the end. She was the most generous, fun, gifted, smart, kind, funny funny funny person I've ever met. She certainly wasn't ready to go. I'm so glad we became pals. I'm so devastated at her loss. I want to write about her more but I can't process yet.
So so so sad. Thank you, Carrie Fisher. What a loss.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) December 27, 2016
