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.
I'm deeply saddened to learn of the death of Carrie Fisher. I will miss our banterings. A wonderful talent & light has been extinguished.
