Mark Hamill’s Tribute to Carrie Fisher

by Lisa Dib

 

 

 

Letters, tweets and memories have been flooding in since December 27 2016, when pop culture icon, mental health advocate and all-round badass Carrie Fisher passed away at age 60 of a heart attack.

 

 

One of these - definitely the one most likely to make you cry - comes from Fisher’s friend and Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill, who wrote about her in a guest column for the Hollywood Reporter.

"She was a handful, but my life would have been so much drabber if she hadn't been my friend” he says in the column, documenting the fun had on the Star Wars sets and Fisher’s unique personality.

"The lengths I would go to hear her laugh — there were no limits. I loved her and loved making her laugh. She would do these crazy things and make me do these crazy things, but I really don’t think they were crazy after all. In a way, it was a defense mechanism for her. She was so off the wall, she could use it as protection. Part of what was so poignant about her was that she was vulnerable, that there was this glimmer of a little girl that was so appealing and it roused the protective nature in my personality."

Read the column here. RIP, Carrie.
