Mark Hamill pays tribute to 'Star Wars' costar Carrie Fisher on her 2nd death anniversary
Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd also paid her respects to her late mom and took to social media where she posted a video of herself singing in honor of her mother
It's been two years since we lost Carrie Fisher and, on the iconic 'Star Wars' actress' 2nd death anniversary, she was fondly remembered by not only scores of movie fans, but also her space brother Mark Hamill and her daughter Billie Lourd.
On Thursday, 67-year-old Hamill shared a special shout-out to Fisher, who passed away from a cardiac arrest two years ago, at the age of 60. “It makes me so happy to know how overwhelmed & touched she would be by the worldwide outpouring of love & affection for her today,” the 'Star Wars' icon tweeted along with a red heart emoji.
In addition to his adorable caption, the actor added the hashtags #AlwaysWithUs #CarrieOnForever and #KeepMovingThingsAreBoundToBeImproving. Hamill and Fisher starred as the popular twins Luke and Leia through five previous films of the famous movie franchise.
Fisher was on a flight from London to Los Angeles when she went into cardiac arrest on Dec. 23, 2016. She was removed from the aircraft by paramedics who rushed to her rescue immediately, and when the actress got to the nearest hospital, she was treated for a heart attack. She passed away four days later, much to her family and fans' despair.
In July this year, Hamill had shared some throwback pictures of the actress before his return to 'Star Wars', which he claimed were his favorite pictures of his time with Fisher in the previous movies.
“It’s bittersweet facing my final chapter without her — She is simply irreplaceable,” he tweeted. “I’m finding solace in the fact that she won’t BE replaced & would love the worldwide outpouring of affection from those who loved her when they heard the news.”
Fisher's daughter Billie Roud also paid her respects to her late mom and took to social media where she posted a video of herself singing in honor of her mother. "It has been two years since my Momby's death and I still don't know what the 'right' thing to do on a death anniversary is (I'm sure a lot of you feel the same way about your loved ones)," Lourd captioned the video.
"So I decided to do something a little vulnerable for me, but something we both loved to do together — sing. I hope this encourages anyone feeling a little low or lost to 'keep on moving.' As my Momby once said, 'Take your broken heart and turn it into art' — whatever that art may be for you," Lourd added.
