Mark Hamill Quoted This 'Star Wars' Line On The Anniversary Of Carrie Fisher's Death

The star posted a moving social media tribute.

Today marks the one-year anniversary of actress and writer Carrie Fisher's death at age 60. Fans are sharing their own tributes to the star on social media, but one of the most touching posts comes from her Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill.

Early Wednesday morning, Hamill posted a trio of photos on Twitter and Instagram — an old snap of him and Fisher in the days of the original trilogy, an image of their characters Luke and Leia as they appear in the latest Star Wars installment The Last Jedi, and funny religious-inspired artwork of Fisher giving the middle finger while holding her dog Gary.


But perhaps the most moving part of Hamill's post is the caption he included. "No one's ever really gone..." he wrote, quoting a line spoken by Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi. He added the hashtags #AlwaysWithUs and #CarrieOnForever.

It was a simple way to mark one year without the actress, and fans were clearly moved by it, as the tweet has received tens of thousands of retweets so far. Many replied with their own favorite images and quotes from the iconic actress. One user chimed in to credit Lindsay van Ekelenberg as the artist behind the portrait.

Shortly after Fisher's death, Hamill penned an essay remembering their time together on the set of the original Star Wars trilogy. "She had a way of just being so brutally candid. I'd just met her but it was like talking to a person you'd known for 10 years," he wrote, adding, "Like I say, she was a handful. She was high maintenance. But my life would have been so much drabber and less interesting if she hadn't been the friend that she was."

Hamill also shared a statement on social media following Fisher's death, in which he described her as "one gorgeous, fiercely independent & ferociously funny, take-charge woman who took our collective breath away."

Since her death, Fisher has been remembered for her talent as an actress and writer, her one-of-a-kind personality, and her mental health advocacy. At a recent press conference for The Last Jedi, the women of the film shared what Fisher meant to them. Newcomer Kelly Marie Tran, who plays Rose Tico, shared, "I think she will always be an icon as Leia, but also as Carrie."

The Last Jedi, which is dedicated to Fisher, marks her final appearance in a Star Wars film. "She's wonderful in the movie," Hamill told E! News at the London premiere. "I always think of her in the present, not the past."
