Hamill went on to say that Fisher liked his personality Star Wars fans and beyond. In his statement, he said Fisher was “determined and sorry” when she wanted to. He also said that the star had a softer side to her.

“She is determined and sad, but with a vulnerability that has taken root for her and wants her to succeed and be happy,” Hamill said. “She played such an important part in my professional and personal life, and both of them would have been very empty without her.”

“I am grateful for the smile, the wisdom, the kindness and even the self-willed banner, which a space couple has given me over the years,” concluded Hamill. “Thanks, Carrie. I love you.”
