Mark Hamill posts in memorial of his “Star Wars” co-star Carrie Fisher on her birthday on social media. The post looks back at their time together on the set of the iconic film series.
For those who are not aware, today would have been Carrie Fisher’s 65th birthday. The late actress is most known for her roll as Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” series. Fisher and Hamill starred in the first trilogy of the iconic series and are ultimately responsible for the incredible fandom that is still strong today, 40 years after its premiere in theaters.
In his post, Hamill writes: “Happy Birthday to a very special someone who was never not fun & always highly tolerant of my juvenile on-set high jinks… even when she wasn’t in the mood. #CarrieOnForever.”
