Mark Hamill Discovers Painting in London Hotel Room That Reminds Him of Carrie Fisher
Cue the waterworks.
Mark Hamill late Tuesday night shared a picture of a painting in his London hotel room that contained a special image: a figure that looked just like Princess Leia from Star Wars: A New Hope.

"Sooooo.... Look who I found looking over my shoulder in a painting on the wall of my London hotel room. Coincidence? I DON'T THINK SO! #AlwaysWithMe," Hamill tweeted along with the painting.
Fans were quick to point out that not only did the figure look like Fisher's character, but also its pose in the painting was similar to that of Princess Leia's when Luke Skywalker first enters Leia's detention cell on the Death Star.
Fisher died in December 2015. Her final film was The Last Jedi, in which she and Hamill have a touching reunion.
When Hamill was awarded his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier this month, Harrison Ford told the crowd he wished the third member of the iconic trio were there. "But I feel her presence," Ford said.
Hamill, also a social media Jedi with millions of followers among his platforms, often shares reminders and tributes of his beloved space sister.
It is unclear whether Hamill will play Luke again in Epsiode IX, recently joking with ABC News that it was up to returning director J.J. Abrams.
