Hamill named ‘leg­end’ but misses Car­rie

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY RYAN PEAR­SON

Star Wars’ Mark STAR Wars ac­tor Mark Hamill has been be­stowed one of Dis­ney’s high­est hon­ours but wished Car­rie Fisher was there to see it.

The pair were named Dis­ney Leg­ends dur­ing a cer­e­mony at the com­pany’s bian­nual fan con­ven­tion in Cal­i­for­nia.

Hamill, 65, said Fisher – who played Princess Leia – would have been en­ter­tain­ing him at the event.

The Luke Sky­walker ac­tor added: “Well, I wish Car­rie were here.

“She would be mak­ing me laugh and be off cam­era ex­tend­ing her mid­dle fin­ger – one of her favourite ges­tures.”

Hamill added while he missed his co-star – who died in De­cem­ber – she would want the event to be cel­e­bra­tory and not sad. Singer Ora
