By the time you read this, I’ll be in Cardiff off to see ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ at the cinema!
I’d like to make a little tribute to Carrie Fisher, the actress who played Princess Leia in the ‘Star Wars’ movies! I’m deeply saddened to hear the news that Carrie Fisher passed away this week. I know that many ‘Star Wars’ fans will be devastated and deeply miss her as she was well-loved as Princess Leia.
I’m not an avid ‘Star Wars’ fan like many others, but I’ve enjoyed seeing the ‘Star Wars’ movies on DVD and at the cinema. My memories of Carrie Fisher are happy ones as I’ve enjoyed seeing her in the original ‘Star Wars’ film trilogy as Princess Leia with Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, C-3P0 and R2-D2.
I’m pleased that I saw Carrie Fisher on the big screen earlier this year in January 2016 when watching ‘Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens’ at the cinema. I look forward to seeing her make her final appearance as Leia in ‘Episode VIII’, although it will be strange watching it with her no longer with us.
I liked some of the tributes given to Carrie from other celebrities like Mark Hamil, William Shatner, Whoopi Goldberg, Stephen Fry, Warwick Davis, etc. Here is a news article on BBC News covering the announcement of Carrie Fisher’s death – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-38446753
I’m so saddened Carrie Fisher has passed away this year and I feel for the ‘Star Wars’ fans who must be devastated from hearing the news. I have happy memories of Carrie Fisher. Although I never met Carrie at conventions, I do feel that one of our best loved sci-fi ladies has been taken away from us!
My prayers and thoughts go to Carrie’s family; friends and all who knew her.
“May the force be with you, Carrie! Always!”
Thanks for reading.
Bye for now.
