Her on-screen brother and co-star in the Star Wars movies, Mark Hamill shared a short but powerful message on Twitter. The two have worked together and been friends for over 40 years. He posted a classic picture of himself and Carrie in their Luke and Leia outfits and simply tweeted: “devastated.” Although short and sad he later posted a much longer, very emotional tribute to his late friend on Facebook.

It reads: “It’s never easy to lose such a vital, irreplaceable member of the family, but this is downright heartbreaking. Carrie was one-of-a-kind who belonged to us all- whether she liked it or not. She was OUR Princess, damn it, & the actress who played her blurred into one gorgeous, fiercely independent & ferociously funny, take-charge woman who took our collective breath away.”

“Determined & tough, but with a vulnerability that made you root for her & want her to succeed & be happy. She played such a crucial role in my professional & personal life, & both would have been far emptier without her. I am grateful for the laughter, the wisdom, the kindness & even the bratty, self-indulgent crap my beloved space-twin gave me through the years. Thanks Carrie. I love you, mh…”

Carrie Fisher, who played the iconic role of Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies, died on Tuesday after a heart attack. The tragedy resulted in a massive outpouring of grief and sadness across social media. Fans, family and friends, including many celebrities shared their heartache. Her scenes for the soon to be released Episode VIII of the franchise have already been shot so we will soon be able to enjoy her talent posthumously.

Creator of Star Wars, George Lucas, was equally devastated by the news. He first cast her in the famous role back in 1997. He spoke highly of her “very colourful personality”. He went on to say: “Carrie and I have been friends most of our adult lives. She was extremely smart; a talented actress, writer and comedienne with a very colourful personality that everyone loved.

In Star Wars, she was our great and powerful princess – feisty, wise and full of hope in a role that was more difficult than most people might think. “My heart and prayers are with Billie, Debbie and all Carrie’s family, friends and fans. She will be missed by all.” She will most certainly be missed.
