Today, October 21st, marks what would have been the 64th birthday of legendary actress Carrie Fisher
. The death of the Princess Leia star in late 2016 hit the Star Wars
fandom and the world at large hard, as Fisher was such a titan of the industry. To mark her birthday, social media has been full of messages today from those who knew and adored the actress. Including her on screen brother and co-star of 40 years, Mark Hamill
Hamill, the Luke Skywalker to her Leia, posted a brief but moving tweet this morning in honor of Fisher. “Happy Birthday Carrie Frances Fisher,” he began, “the world will never stop missing you…” Along with his statement, he shared a sweet photo of himself and his friend from back in the day that captures them in the middle of a faux smooch.
Happy Birthday Carrie Frances Fisher.
the world will never stop missing you…
