Mark Hamill has a special message for his late onscreen space twin, Carrie Fisher. On Thursday, the 67-year-old actor gave a sweet shout out to Carrie, who died two years ago of cardiac arrest at the age of 60. “It makes me so happy to know how overwhelmed & touched she would be by the worldwide outpouring of love & affection for her today,” he tweeted, including the hashtags #AlwaysWithUs, #CarrieOnForever, and #KeepMovingThingsAreBoundToBeImproving. Mark and Carrie starred together as twins Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa in five Star Wars films.
In 2017, Mark also honored Carrie at the Disney Legends award ceremony when giving a speech. “We loved each other, and what a great thrill it was to come back to The Force Awakens at that time in our lives,” he said. “There was a comfort level with each other. We could rely on each other, and there was a deep respect.”
Mark’s recent tribute comes shortly after Carrie’s daughter, Billie Lourd, paid her respects to her mother in a touching Instagram post. She shared a video of her playing the piano and singing one of Carrie’s favorite songs, “These Days” by Jackson Browne. “I hope this encourages anyone feeling a little low or lost to ‘keep on moving,'” she wrote in the caption. “As my Momby once said, ‘take your broken heart and turn it into art’ — whatever that art may be for you.”
