Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd was seen remembering her famous mother on what would have been her 64th birthday.
Carrie, who is best known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, died nearly four years ago in December 2016.
As her birthday came around on Wednesday, fans worldwide and Carrie’s former co-stars were seen paying tribute to the actress, with her daughter Billie also taking to Instagram to honour her.
Billie, 28, posted a throwback photo of her mum Carrie when she was pregnant.
In the photo, Carrie was seen with a huge baby bump, while dressed in a black summer dress and shades.
Alongside the retro snap, Billie shared a series of emoji: ‘💕✨♓️🅰️🅰️🅰️✨💕.’
She is often seen remembering Carrie on her social media page and in May, Billie was seen reaching out to those who had lost their mothers while marking Mother’s Day over in the US.
Revealing how she copes with the loss, Billie, who welcomed a baby boy in September with her fiancé, wrote: ‘Sending my love to anyone who has lost a mother and anyone who might just be having a complicated Mother’s Day this year.
‘This is my 4th Mother’s Day without my Momby and days like today are never easy, but I’ve found that doing things that make me feel more connected to her make it a little easier – watching her favorite movies, listening to music we listened to together, looking through old pictures and my personal favorite – eating + drinking things she loved. (Today I’m going to watch Postcards from The Edge, listen to Tom Petty + Dire Straits, have a fried mozzarella from La Scala and have a couple Coca-Colas with an aggressive amount of ice).
‘Happy Mother’s Day, but Mother’s Day can be more than just one adjective, so sad Mother’s Day / weird Mother’s Day / funny Mother’s Day / angry Mother’s Day / or any combination of the above. ❤️.’
Her birthday tribute comes as Star Wars legend Mark Hamill was seen remembering Carrie on her birthday.
The actor, 69, shared an old photo of himself puckering up to Carrie, along with a broken heart emoji, and wrote: ‘Happy birthday Carrie Frances Fisher. The world will never stop missing you….’
Carrie died, aged 60, of a heart attack on December 27, 2016 after falling ill on a flight from London to Los Angeles four days earlier.
It was reported Carrie had stopped breathing on the flight, 15 minutes before the aircraft landed. CPR was performed on her and she was taken to hospital where she remained in intensive care until she died four days later.
Her death came before she had finished filming the recent Star Wars trilogy.
Fans, however, still got to see Carrie on the big screen, as director JJ Abrams used footage from The Force Awakens in order to ensure the star was still a part of The Rise Of Skywalker film.
Carrie was a much-loved part of the Star Wars franchise and had made her first debut in the movies in 1977.
Her mother Debbie Reynolds died a day after Carrie on December 28, 2016, aged 84.
