Fans, friends wish Car­rie Fisher well

The Denver Post - - NEWS -

Tributes and well-wishes poured in for “Star Wars” ac­tress Car­rie Fisher, 60, who was spend­ing Christ­mas Eve in a Los An­ge­les hospi­tal af­ter suf­fer­ing a med­i­cal emer­gency on a flight the day be­fore.

“Princess Leia can sur­vive any­thing!” wrote one fan on Twit­ter. “Hold on, Car­rie Fisher. We’re tak­ing you into 2017 with us,” wrote an­other. Her “Star Wars” co-star Mark Hamill said he was “send­ing all our love.”

Todd Fisher, the ac­tress’ brother, said Fri­day night that his sis­ter was re­ceiv­ing ex­cel­lent care but that he could not clas­sify her con­di­tion. He had ear­lier told The As­so­ci­ated Press that she had been sta­bi­lized and was out of the emer­gency room. In a sub­se­quent in­ter­view, he said many de­tails about her con­di­tion or what caused the med­i­cal emer­gency are un­known.

Fans on Twit­ter hoped she would pull through. One wrote: “Car­rie Fisher sur­vived al­co­holism, ad­dic­tion, de­pres­sion, bipo­lar dis­or­der & 60 years in Hol­ly­wood. If any­one can sur­vive 2016, it’s her.” The ac­tress’ for­mer co-star Peter May­hew, who played “Star Wars” char­ac­ter Chew­bacca, called her “ev­ery­one’s fa­vorite princess right now.”

And Har­ri­son Ford, who played Han Solo op­po­site Fisher, in a state­ment said: “I’m shocked and sad­dened to hear the news about my dear friend. Our thoughts are with Car­rie, her fam­ily and friends.”
