Gisteren overleed actrice Carrie Fisher onverwachts op 60 jarige leeftijd. Fisher speelde Prinses Leia in de originele Star Wars-trilogie (1977-1983) en nam de rol opnieuw op in 2015 voor Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Ze rondde onlangs de opnames af van Star Wars: Episode VIII. Familie, collega’s en fans reageerden allen geschrokken op het nieuws. Hieronder hebben we enkele reacties verzameld van collega’s.

Star Wars-bedenker George Lucas reageerde met onderstaand bericht:
“Carrie and I have been friends for most of our adult lives. She was extremely smart; a talented actress, writer and comedienne with a very colorful personality that everyone loved. 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 might think. My heart and prayers are with Billie, Debbie and all Carrie’s family, friends and fans. She will be missed by all.”
Lucasfilm directeur Kathleen Kennedy:
“Carrie holds such a special place in the hearts of everyone at Lucasfilm it is difficult to think of a world without her. She was Princess Leia to the world but a very special friend to all of us. She had an indomitable spirit, incredible wit, and a loving heart. Carrie also defined the female hero of our age over a generation ago. Her groundbreaking role as Princess Leia served as an inspiration of power and confidence for young girls everywhere. We will miss her dearly.“
