Carrie Fisher, a Hollywood icon who skyrocketed to fame as Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” movies, died Tuesday at the age of 60.

As news of her death spread, her former co-stars and fellow entertainers shared their condolences and remembrances of Fisher.

“No words,” tweeted Mark Hamill.

“Carrie was one-of-a-kind… brilliant, original,” Harrison Ford said in a statement. “Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely.”

George Lucas said in a statement that he had been friends with Fisher for “most of our adult lives” and offered condolences to her family, friends and fans.

“She was extremely smart; a talented actress, writer and comedienne with a very colorful personality that everyone loved,” Lucas said. “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.”

Others also expressed their admiration for Fisher and sympathies for her family.
