Yesterday, Mark Hamill took a moment to share a touching tribute to his co-star and friend, Carrie Fisher, who sadly passed away last year. During Thanksgiving, Hamill stated, “thankful for the memories.”
Hamill took the passing of Fisher hard and still reflects on Fisher in the present tense. Here’s what the actor had to say to Men’s Journal:
“The only way I’ve been able to cope is to think of her in the present tense. She’s so vital in my mind even today,” He also went on to candidly speak. “We had our ups and downs. She was almost like a real sibling because I loved her deeply, but she could be so exasperating. When she went into cardiac arrest, it never occurred to me that she wouldn’t bounce back. I just thought, ‘Well, she’s got her next book written.’ She’ll call it A Piece of My Heart or something acerbic and witty.”

We’ll see Hamill and Fisher both reprise their roles of Luke Skywalker and General Leia in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi next month, but it’s still unclear if this is the last time we’ll see the two on-screen again.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 14th, 2017.
