Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd sends strength to those missing loved ones in tribute to late mum

Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd has paid tribute to her late mother on the fourth anniversary of her death.

Star Wars actress Carrie died on December 27, 2016 from a cardiac arrest several days after falling ill on a flight from London to Los Angeles.

Taking to Instagram, Billie shared a throwback picture of her stood with her mum in front of a black cab in London.

The 28-year-old actress captioned the photo: ‘Sending my love and strength to everyone out there that’s missing a loved one they’ve lost.

‘Especially those of you who have lost someone during this crazy year. You’re not alone.’

Billie’s touching message followed a tribute from Mark Hamill, who posted a photo of the credits of a Star Wars film which read: ‘In loving memory of our princess Carrie Fisher’.


Writing alongside the image, he penned: ‘#AlwaysWithUs.’

Carrie had fallen ill on a flight four days before she died, with a passenger sitting near to her reporting that she had stopped breathing around 15 minutes before the aircraft landed.

CPR was performed on her until paramedics arrived and she was then taken to hospital and remained in intensive care until she died four days later, aged 60.

She died before finishing filming on the recent Star Wars trilogy and director JJ Abrams used footage from The Force Awakens for The Rise Of Skywalker

Carrie’s mother and fellow Hollywood actress Debbie Reynolds also died a day after her daughter on December 28, at the age of 84.

Debbie had suffered a stroke while arranging Carrie’s funeral with the family.

Carrie had been a much-loved star of the Star Wars movies, playing Princess Leia from the original Star Wars film in 1977.
