’Space sis’ had force
STAR Wars icon Mark Hamill paid emotional tribute to his “space sis”, Carrie Fisher, as both had Disney “legend” status bestowed upon them.
Fisher — who died aged 60 in December — and her co-star had been friends since they played twins Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker in the sci-fi saga.
“I would love to give my deepest respects for the super cool space sis I have in Carrie Frances Fisher,” Hamill, 65, told a Disney D23 fan convention in California yesterday.
“We were like siblings, the good and the bad.
“We’d have huge fights ... but we loved each other.
“What a huge thrill it was to come back in The Force
Awakens at that time in our lives. There was a comfort level with each other, we could rely on each other.”
