Los Angeles Friends, fans and Hollywood stars added their voices to a torrent of tributes for “Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher, who died at the age of 60 due to a heart attack.
The screen icon, catapulted to worldwide stardom as rebel warrior Princess Leia in the original “Star Wars” trilogy, was pronounced dead in Los Angeles, four days after collapsing on a transatlantic flight.
Here are the most notable tributes:
“Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter. I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop.”
Fisher’s mother, the actress Debbie Reynolds
“She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly.”
Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker)
“In ‘Star Wars’ she was our great and powerful princess — feisty, wise and full of hope in a role that was more difficult than most people think… she will be missed by all.”
Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian)
“I thought I had got what I wanted under the tree. I didn’t. In spite of so many thoughts and prayers from so many. I am very, very sad.”
David Prowse (Darth Vader)
“There are no words for this loss. Carrie was the brightest light in every room she entered. I will miss her dearly.”
