Hamill re­mem­bers Fisher as ‘beloved space twin’

Mark Hamill says he’s still griev­ing over Car­rie Fisher’s death, but shar­ing mem­o­ries of his late friend and co-star with fans at Star Wars Cel­e­bra­tion is “part of the process that I need to move on.”

Hamill led an hour­long trib­ute to Fisher on Fri­day evening in Or­lando, Florida. He called Fisher “my beloved space twin” and said they were also great friends off-screen. He said they even shared a steamy make-out ses­sion once.

Hamill told sto­ries of visit­ing with Fisher and her mother, Deb­bie Reynolds, in New York and at­tend­ing in­cred­i­ble par­ties at their homes in Los An­ge­les.

He also in­tro­duced video clips of Ge­orge Lu­cas and “The Last Jedi” di­rec­tor Rian John­son in which they share anec­dotes about work­ing with Fisher.
