Actress Billie Lourd went to Instagram to empathize with those who lost loved ones due to the pandemic while honoring her late mother Carrie Fisher on the fourth anniversary of the Hollywood icon and Star Wars legend’s death.
“I send my love and strength to everyone out there who misses a loved one they lost,” Lourd wrote Sunday. ‘Especially those who lost someone during this crazy year. You are not alone.”
Fisher passed away on December 27, 2016 after suffering a heart attack during a flight to Los Angeles. Fisher’s mother and Lourd’s grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, died the next day from a stroke.
It continues Lourd’s tributes to her mother and grandmother. In 2019, she remembers Fisher with a song. She also “appears” as Fisher’s iconic princess / General Leia in a digitally altered scene in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which was filmed before Fisher’s death. She also plays the granddaughter of Reynolds’ character on the recent Will & Grace reload.
In addition, Fisher’s Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill also went on social media to honor the actress and writer. He posts a screenshot of Star Wars end credits reading “In Loving Memory of our Princess Carrie Fisher” with the caption “#AlwaysWithUs”.
