Billie Lourd, Mark Hamill Pay Tribute to Carrie Fisher on One-Year Anniversary of Her Death
Laura Dern, William Shatner and others also remembered the late 'Star Wars' actress and writer on social media.
One year after iconic Star Wars actress and writer Carrie Fisher died at the age of 60, Hollywood paid tribute on the anniversary of her death on social media Wednesday. Throughout the day, fans and former colleagues posted remembrances with the hashtag #CarrieOnForever to commemorate Fisher's legacy as the original Star Wars trilogy's Princess Leia, and the author of books including The Princess Diarist, Wishful Drinking and Shockaholic, among other titles.
"My momby [sic] had an otherworldly obsession with the northern lights, but I never got to see them with her. We journeyed to northern Norway to see if we might 'see the heavens lift up her dark skirts and flash her dazzling privates across [our] unworthy irises,'" Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, wrote on Instagram. "And she did. I love you times infinity."
"No one's ever really gone… #AlwaysWithUs #CarrieOnForever," Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill wrote on Twitter, alongside two images of himself and Fisher, and fan art of Fisher resembling the Christian Virgin Mary, holding her dog and a middle finger to the viewer.
Actress Laura Dern, Fisher's co-star on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, wrote her own tribute on Instagram beside a split photo of Fisher in Star Wars: A New Hope and The Last Jedi. "To a goddess, an icon, and a truth-teller. The deepest kind of inspiration. Thinking today of the privilege of knowing you."

Didn't know Carrie Fisher but won't ever forget this: When I got to SNL in 1986 Julian Ford was talent coordinator. Brilliant sweet guy. And one of the first people I knew who got aids. As he got sicker he left NY & Carrie took took care of him til the end. #CarrieOnForever— Mike Shoemaker (@shoemakermike) December 27, 2017
