Star Wars cast on what Carrie Fisher left behind


Carrie Fisher had a legacy that is far from just her Star Wars character and the cast looks at Carrie and what she meant to them in a Vanity Fair article.

Carrie Fisher was a force to be reckoned with. From her writing to her script doctoring to even her talks, everything about her was special. So when she died, many of us felt like we lost a light in the world.

But we weren’t the only ones. As seen in the cover story article for Vanity Fair, the cast also took a hit when Carrie died. From Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford, who took this journey with her from the beginning, to the words that Carrie shared with Daisy Ridley, they all had a special place in their hearts for the Princess.

Daisy especially shared a bond with Carrie that many didn’t know about or don’t understand. Much like Carrie herself, Daisy was a pretty unknown actress before Star Wars came along. So Carrie shared some thoughts with the young star that Daisy rehashed.

"Carrie lived her life the way she wanted to, never apologizing for anything, which is something I’m still learning. ‘Embarrassed’ is the wrong word, but there were times through it all when I felt like I was … shrinking. And she told me never to shrink away from it—that it should be enjoyed."

The pictures from the article were quite moving, especially the one of Mark and Carrie that is reminscient of a photo taken of the two years ago.

But the best part about all of this? The stories we continue to get about Carrie and her wild personality we knew and loved so well.

"I remember—and forgive me, I’m going to drop the f-bomb, but that’s just Carrie—she said, ‘Ah, boohoo, who f******’ cares? You just do you’. Words like that give you strength. I bore witness in a million ways to her sharing her wisdom with Daisy too."

Carrie’s legacy continues to live on in her work and with her daughter Billie Lourd. We love and miss our General Organa but we know she’s probably watching over us with a Coke in hand.
