’Space sis’ had force

Sunday Herald Sun - - News -

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.”
