Actress Billie Lourd took to Instagram to sympathize with those who have lost loved ones to the pandemic while paying tribute to her late mother Carrie Fisher on the Hollywood icon’s fourth birthday and Star wars the death of the legend.
“I send my love and strength to all those who miss a loved one they have lost,” Lourd wrote on Sunday. “Especially those of you who have lost someone in this crazy year. You’re not alone.”
Fisher died on December 27, 2016, after suffering a heart attack while on a flight to Los Angeles. Fisher’s mother and Lourd’s grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, died the next day from a stroke.
This continues Lourd’s tributes to his mother and grandmother. In 2019, she remembered Fisher with a song. She also “appeared” as Fisher’s iconic Princess / General Leia in a digitally altered scene in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which was filmed before Fisher died. She also played the granddaughter of Reynolds’ character on the recent Will and grace to restart.
In addition, Fisher’s Star wars Co-star Mark Hamill also took to social media to honor the actress and writer. He posted a screenshot of Star wars end credits that read “In Memory of Our Princess Carrie Fisher” with the caption “#AlwaysWithUs”.
