Carrie Fisher Recieves Posthumous Star
Star Wars alum Carrie Fisher, who passed away in 2016, was posthumously awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony, which took place yesterday, was attended by her co star Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and her daughter, Billie Lourd who threw glitter on the unveiled star; her metallic dress bearing a portrait of her beloved mother.
"My mom used to say you weren’t actually famous until you became a Pez dispenser. Well, people eat candy out of her neck every day. I say you aren’t actually famous until you get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” she said. “My mom is a double-whammy — a Pez dispenser and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame now. Mama, you’ve made it."
Carrie Fisher, daughter of Hollywood veteran, Debbie Reynolds, played Princess (later General) Leia Organa in 6 of the sci-fi film series, her last being 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' (2017).
